Kurosaki: moving towards spiritual unity

Saturday, October 23, 2021
    [Jesus:] “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
    —Matthew 18:20 (NIV)
    I believe God is moving to reveal to all Christians what the true center of the Christian faith is, and that the inevitable spiritual unity which will surely result will be one of the major steps toward the fulfillment of God’s full purpose—His “eternal purpose.” All Christians are one Body in Christ—we cannot create this, but only recognize it. However, we must recognize it and then fearlessly practice it, disregarding our differences in doctrine, forms and interpretations of the Bible. We must receive one another on the ground of a mutual fellowship with God in living union with Christ in the Spirit.
    ... Kokichi Kurosaki (1886-1970), One Body in Christ, Kobe, Japan: Eternal Life Press, 1954, ch. 5 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 18:20; John 17:22-23; Rom. 12:4-5; 14:5-6; 15:5-7; 1 Cor. 1:10; 10:17; 12:12-13; 2 Cor. 3:5-6; Eph. 1:22-23; 1 Tim. 3:14-15; 1 Pet. 3:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, hasten the day of unity.
