“Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose” (Philippians 2:1-2).

When there is a common goal, things do have a way of working better.  When our minds are set on Christ, He is the only ultimate goal worth having.  Set your minds on Christ and hear the truth of the ages come alive in you.  Work together with those whom the Lord has placed you with, knowing that in Him is all hope and the only future worth having.  Come then in unity as the Lord prayed for us to have.

Lord, there is so much contention in this age.  The wicked one sends those who bring division.  Lead me, O Lord, so that I may stay in unity with You and promote harmony amongst the brethren.  Guide me in the Gospel way so that I would not act as a lone ranger, but as one who is in need of what only You and the fellowship in which You have placed me can provide.  You are the Creator and I am the created.

Lord Jesus. Let me not be caught up in worshiping the self, but freely join together with those whom You have joined me together with in order to worship in spirit and truth.  Lead me in the way You know I need to go and then help me go there.  In and through all things, may I be found living under Your direction and doing what is pleasing in Your sight.  Through all things, may Your will and way shine in me!  Amen.
