A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
At the Oasis, we’re always striving to love and be unified as Jesus wants us to be as members of the Body of Christ …
1 Corinthians 12:25-27
That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now
ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Jesus knew that “schism”isms would be whispered softly by the enemy of our souls to try and weaken our team. Think about it … If we all practiced UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for our fellow
Christians, all the time, what strides we could make for the glory of God! So of course, as the enemy of our souls is the prince of this world, he will use any worldly means he can, to break down our accord. He doesn’t have to
completely sever us to thwart our unity … Just a little rift here and there, a fracture, a tension, a smirk … It only takes a tiny little something to move from unconditional to conditional love. Don’t forget …
1 Peter 5:8-9
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom (you should) resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren
that are in the world.
How many times do you find yourself out of harmony, and you don’t understand what happened? That’s because the enemy is subtil, and his offerings are subtle, so that oft times we are CONvinced
that though we, by thought, word, or deed, may cause only a microscopic fissure, we still love one another. Ahhh, but here is what makes us as Christians different from those who pursue the thought processes of the worldly …
… as I have loved you …
Read on …
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
We are identified as Christians because our love for one another goes
above and beyond ordinary old, average, run of the mill love … We love AS Jesus loves us. Be alert to the kisses of the
"To be kissed by a fool is stupid, To be fooled by a kiss is worse."
Let the love of Christ take over your heart and let’s triumph in unity loving one another, listening to one another, helping one another, encouraging one another, edifying one another, and putting others before ourselves.
May God bless you and your loved ones, and may the Holy Spirit work through you, to strengthen the unity and love within Christianity Oasis and everywhere you go.
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another …
