CHRISTIAN UNITY IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE IF THE RIGHT CRITERIA IS AGREED UPON AND ENGAGED IN
By: Norm Rasmussen
The following writing is from
a highly recommended devotional,
written by Neil Anderson. In my estimation, it is
a treasured devotional indeed:
Shoes Of Peace
Having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of
peace. (Ephesians 6:15)
The next piece of armor is the shoes of peace. When you receive
Christ, you are united with the Prince of Peace. You have peace
with God right now (Romans 5:1), but the peace of Christ must
also rule in your heart if you are going to live victoriously,
and that is possible only when you let the Word of Christ richly
dwell in you (Colossians 3:15, 16).
The shoes of peace become protection against the divisive
schemes of the devil when you act as a peacemaker among
believers (Romans 14:19). Peacemakers bring people together by
promoting fellowship and reconciliation. "Blessed are the
peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God" (Matthew
5:9). Anyone can divide a church fellowship
and/or outreach ministry, but it takes the grace of
God to unite us in Him. (Emphasis mine - Norm R.)
Too many Christians insist on common doctrine as the basis for
fellowship. They reason that if we don't think the same and
believe the same, there is no basis for peace. But common
doctrine isn't the basis for fellowship; common heritage is.
We're all children of God. If you wait to fellowship with
someone until you agree perfectly on every point of doctrine,
you'll be the loneliest Christian on earth. Instead of insisting
on the unity of the mind, preserve the unity of the Spirit by
taking the initiative to be the peacemaker in your relationships

A Special Message:
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can
be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance
from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either
Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He
did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the
Judgment Day and tell
Him that you didn't need
the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and
get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a
To get to know God, to be at
peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will
be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with
God right now ... please
to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.
What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will
spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most
important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is
impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
