Editor’s Pick: Of The Same, But Different

The Lord ministered something to me today.  It was something I needed to hear, and it has set me free from the task of worrying and judging.  I hope others are blessed by this message.

While I was reading an e-book by another Sister in Christ, whom I have recently come to know, I thought about how our experiences were similar.  I thought about the things she was sharing, which were the things God had been teaching me too.  I already knew from her blog that she had a special relationship with God…but yet, we don’t agree on everything.

I’ve written other posts about this issue before, about how it is hard to know those who are true believers and why it is something we will have to leave God to reveal, and not set ourselves up as judges.  But, I’ve also always thought, if you’re intimate with God, and I’m intimate with God, we should know ourselves, and be united.  We should think alike and act alike…  We should be able to get along all the time…

  1. Your last few sentences were compelling. There is something inside us that says this unity should be true, but we find it isn’t.
    This is a perspective issue, and to rectify it one must cross the physicality/spirituality divide. What I mean by this is: a physical reading of, say the Scriptures, will render many different physical understandings. On this level there will never be complete agreement.
    However, on the spiritual level, spiritually being led through the passages, by Christ, through spiritual hearing, we find perfect agreement is the outcome.
    The problem is, so few believers actually are in contact with, and hear the Voice of Christ.
    We cannot know the fullness of Truth on our own. It is too deep. We have to be fully immersed in the Spirit of Christ to understand. As One, we become One. It doesn’t happen any sooner than this.
