Just A Thought! Unity in the Spirit

just a thought forerunnerBut when the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth Who comes (proceeds) from the Father, He [Himself] will testify regarding Me.     ~Jesus ~

One of the most amazing things I get to experience is observing believers from different “brands” of theology and religious doctrine shed religious distinctives that normally bring division and enter into the unity of the Holy Spirit.

As believers are  equipped through apostolic and prophetic function to know, listen judiciously to and be empowered through the Spirit of Truth, that Truth, which is the Person of Christ, is expressed experientially in all dimensions of human existence and, particularly, in the formation and function of corporate community.

    • Absolutely! Cessationists experiencing the liberty and working of the Holy Spirit is a common one. Holiness legalism common to Pentacostals fading in the light of true fellowship with brothers is a good one. Catholics and Baptists focusing on power of baptism into Christ rather than water baptism methods.

      Many more. All good things to experience when people learn Christ and seek to Love as He Loved.

      • Indeed, but the real beauty is not only when gatherings take place but in the way relationships are formed and how life is lived together.

  2. Yes, “the Spirit gives life.”Jn 6:63.

    More personal testimony to glorify Father. When misaligned to Father’s love….my love for “my neighbor”, was hindered by seeing their performance, just as part of my soul man was clothed with. In the spirit realm, we are clothed by what we serve. As I was clothed by misalignment to performance….this same misalignment is what I had to offer to all others Jesus died for. So Holy Spirit removed that veil in my life, and my eye became more “single”, and full of light. And It was literally like throwing a LIGHT switch….I loved the Catholic, the Methodist, the Lutheran, the Baptist,….. the Jesus expressed in everyone, without major effort. Now aligned properly with Holy Spirit who leads and guides into truth….as opposed to his function to the unbeliever to convict of sin, righteousness, and judgement.

    Interesting point Dr. Crosby makes in book from last post….about central themes in scripture vs. secondary themes. Are we seeking the giver or the gift….the first is the central theme….intimacy with Father….as in the beginning, “Adam, where are you?”
