A friend of mine was commenting on the passage she read in Acts that the early church would live in one accord.
I was then reading Philippians and the word “one accord” came up again:
“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort or love, if any fellowship in the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfil my joy by being likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind” (Ph 2:1-2)
It is very clear that those who have the love of Christ and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit they are likeminded and live under one accord because it is not about their will or they way, but a matter of following the Spirit’s way.
So now, why do we see many who call themselves Christians but live in total “disaccord”? Why there is so much opposition to the doctrines of the Bible and many raising “studies” to prove their points that do not agree or justify the Biblical truth?
It is impossible to live in one accord, to be likeminded with the Gospel of Salvation if you did not meet personally the author of your faith.
Some put effort on it but it does not last long because it is not natural, it is not in their mind but rather they abide to the truth for a while moved by their feelings.
When tests and trials come, when what is being said does not agree with their own will, another feeling takes place: rebellion and opposition.
Day Nine - If it is hard for you to agree with the Biblical truth, with the guidelines that are preached, to live in peace with brothers and sisters, to give up your way for the benefit of others – think carefully if you are really born of God.
The Fast of Daniel is to prepare the way for you to meet God face to face.
