The Bond of Peace--Push "Self" Away

Good Morning Saints,
Today, during my readings, I came upon a lesson in ODB about unity among believers. This sounds simple enough, but, indeed, it can be difficult. You see, this means giving-up a lot of  "self" and working for the good of "His Kingdom." We would all like to think that we are able to get along with others in Christ and move forward, but I think the first step is to realize that we have limits. We might begin with the best intentions, but "self" will creep in like a thief if we are not aware of our emotional limits. We MUST be diligent in our seeking of HIM, in order to continuously push "self" to the side and keep "His Ways" in the forefront. As soon as you begin to believe that "you" have things under control, you will fail. It's inevitable. So, I challenge you to continuously ask for HIS intercession so that you will be able to work with other followers. Be blessed!

Scripture for the Day
Ephesians 2:14
He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation.
