Why is it that unity can only be achieved by division ? As God created different administrations to deal with man, He demonstrated how he gave mankind specific callings to keep. It started with Adam who was given the responsiblity to keep the garden. As it turns out, Adam did not keep it and the result was the fall… and sin… and death. Other administrations came along and in every dispensation, man was given something to keep. Today, we’re in the administration of The Mystery, and in this calling we are to keep our conversation, conduct, and walk worthy of the Gospel of Christ. Not only in that gospel, but our walk is to be worthy of the Lord, the Gospel of Christ, and our Calling. The fruit should bear witness of the root. As depicted in the balance achieved on a scale, where one side represents the calling and all the spiritual blessings that go with it, and the other side represents our walk with the commitment to keep what has been set before us as our faith obedience. Right division is where we learn to keep what is specifically given to us. By learning our calling, we are to endeavor to keep the unity of the spirit. Only out of division can we achieve this unity… by the calling out of God’s people. There are too many instances today where Christians give up biblical doctrine applicable to our calling today, in order to avoid conflict and achieve worldly unity. In fact, we should endeavor to keep the unity of the spirit, in the bond of peace by sticking to the word of rightly divided which will rankle some people as indicated in Philippians 1:27-30.
