There are amazing moments in this ministry that make us so excited with what the Lord is doing. Before getting to the details of what happened this morning, I will point you to how Paul felt about being like-minded in the gospel of grace. Remember, this letter was written from prison.
“So, if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves” (Philippians 2:1–3).
We met three pastors this morning who serve the Lord in Spanish communities up and down the Americas. Their desire is to help pastors and churches return to the Scriptures as the foundation of spreading the gospel; repentance and conversion. They want to make disciples of everyone who comes to faith in Jesus Christ so they are established in the faith and become strong witnesses.
Like we have found in many places around the world, they are concerned that the ‘prosperity gospel’ and money has deceived hearts, causing many to turn away from the pure gospel. Joining a church where emotions are stirred has weakened the Church and diverted her from being a powerful witness in this world. They are concerned with us that believers be taught to follow Jesus as a faithful disciple who can disciple others.
As Paul did, we appeal to every believer to have the “same mind… being in full accord and of one mind.” If we are to finish the task of proclaiming the gospel to all nations, we must have unity by the Holy Spirit, not man-made schemes.
