SIDE BY SIDE
Philippians 1:27 ESV Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,
Ephesians 4:1 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,
1 Timothy 6:3-5 If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.
My brothers we are to stand firm in one spirit with one mind side by side with our brothers in Christ Jesus, for the faith of the gospel. If anyone teaches a different doctrine, then he is puffed up, and understands nothing. Then he understands nothing. He craves controversy, and he desires to quarrel over words. This produces envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among the children of God. These walk through this life as separating us from our brothers in whom we must have fellowship with.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
As born again Children of God, we are to turn away from those who teach division. We are required to have fellowship with our brothers. Go back and reread John chapter seventeen.
Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Psalm 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
My brothers in Christ Jesus there are more than fifty verses in the Holy Bible which speaks to the mercy of God that is ours because of Jesus. Strive to walk every day in the above ten verses. I will deliver to you in the near future more of Jesus' teaching on the mercy of God.
God Bless you my brothers. Please strive every day to be one in Christ Jesus. For we are brothers if they teach Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and are born again believers.
