Our Call to Take the High Ground

Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3).

In the midst of all the denominational divisions in the body of Christ, we are called to take the high ground. God has united believers into one body by the unity of His Spirit. We do not create this unity; we are to endeavor to keep it.

The sectarian spirit abounds. Regardless of what low, earthly divisions others may embrace, we are called to see fellow believers as only in Christ. This is the ground of our relationship with them, nothing else. We have been called to take the high, heavenly ground. No matter what others may do, let’s seize the high ground!

Receive each other, as Christ also received us to the glory of God (Romans 15:7).
