As followers of Christ, we need a focus. That focus is sometimes diverted in topics and areas that are irrelevant. One is excessive divisions between those who are dedicated followers of Christ. We need to be tearing down artificial walls among true believers and followers of Christ, not building more. Our battle needs to be focused on following the two greatest commandments, and making disciples, bringing them into the kingdom. Right now many battles in Christianity is focused on the wrong front – each other.
- Let’s focus on truth, which is the gospel.
- Let’s focus on the furtherance of the kingdom of God, with Christ as king and we in his domain.
- Let’s focus on true biblical love, love that is patient, kind, not envious, humble, helps others, trusts, is righteous, and is obedient to Christ’s commands.
