I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. (John 10:16)
One flock and one shepherd.
Not lots of flocks and lots of shepherds.
He wants people to serve His purposes together.
Unity isn’t different factions working on a project together.
Unity is when there are no factions and one shepherd.
He wants all His people to know Him as their shepherd.
There are streams, factions and denominations because of our hardness of heart.
He loves all equally.
No one is more right or more wrong.
Only He is right.
Only He is good.
And the sooner we see that the better.
Being humble isn’t an attitude, it is a state of being.
To love isn’t conditional.
No deserves it.
He alone loves perfectly.
Aim for perfection without making everyone else imperfect in comparison.
You are are the apple of His eye and so is the person next to you.
You are special but not that special.
He loves you perfectly and that should be enough.
Nothing else should even come close to matter more.
If you think you are right, therefore they must be wrong.
Honour Him by honouring others.
Not just those who think of themselves as being important.
