I recently read Ken Rank’s article titled ‘A House Divided.’ Here is a reblog through the barking fox, Al McCarn’s blog.
The SINGLE BIGGEST issue we are faced with in our day is division ad a result of pet doctrines and a failure to realize that a) we may not have all the answers, b) Abba grows us at different paces and in different ways than others, and c) every member of the Body has different giftings and callings.
If we can understand these three simple truths, then we stand a chance of coming together and walking in harmony and unity.
Enjoy this challenging article.
In June 1858, at his nomination as candidate for the Senate from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln invoked the words of Yeshua in admonition to his fractured nation that “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” His warning is one that followers of Yeshua should heed.

What happens when the Holy Spirit enlightens us to some deeper truth of Scripture? In my experience, there is a profound sense of awe at the greatness of our Creator, followed by heartfelt expressions of thanks and praise, and then by petitions for grace on how to apply the newly learned truth. Then comes the urge to share this truth with others. When they get it and grasp the revelation, then of joy enhance our fellowship as this new bit of learning strengthens our connection to each other and to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
