Party Line

It goes without saying that folks from different backgrounds and experiences will have trouble seeing things the same way. Whether it is work, leisure, with our spouses, or in politics, getting a consensus is no small matter. When the Apostle Paul was communicating to the Christians in Corinth, he pleaded with them to have no divisions, but be like minded instead. He said in 1st Cor. 1:10 that this can be accomplished by being perfectly joined together with the same thoughts, words, and judgments. Itís a little like a party line where folks had to share one phone connection with a multitude of people before the technology advanced to where it is today.

You can imagine how confusing it was when more than one party was trying to place a call. Without some kind of agreed upon arrangement, confusion ensued. The key phrase in this passage of scripture in 1st Corinthians is when Paul said that all he was suggesting could be accomplished in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the key to contentment within any local body of Christ and all Christians at large. This is obviously not an easy task because thereís so much infighting on all levels of Christendom that serves only to diminish the power of the unity of Christ on earth as God seeks to work through His body as a whole.

However, in your daily walk you can pursue this peace of the mind of Christ by only having your antenna tuned to the Lordís frequency instead of trying to get rid of the static on every other channel of communication. If your channel is clearly tuned to Jesus and you can discern the unction of that still small voice that He said in John 14:26 when He left this world, that His Father would send in His Name to teach you all things, you will have greater clarity about what you understand. And if weíre all tuned into the same frequency then weíll spend more time agreeing with each other rather than disagreeing.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
