One Mind and One Mouth

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.  Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 15:4-6

“That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God…”  There is much to be said of Christian unity, and the Bible does say much about Christian unity.  All of the things mentioned in the previous verses as given to us so that “with one mind and one mouth” we can glorify God.

God should be getting all of the glory for everything in our lives.  He should be getting all of the glory for everything in our churches.  Often, and sadly, He doesn’t get all of the glory in our lives and He doesn’t get all of the glory in our churches.

We can look in the Bible and we can look in our lives and see how gracious and merciful the Lord has been to us.  We can read in the Scriptures about His longsuffering and goodness even to those who absolutely do not deserve it.  We can see that in our own lives.

If we can start seeing what the Lord has done for us, we will start glorifying Him.  Then maybe another will glorify Him.  Then maybe our entire church will start glorifying Him.  Then maybe it would spread to another church.  Can you imagine what a testimony for Christ there would be if Christians truly glorified Him “with one mind and one mouth?”  I believe that having a revival of thankfulness and glorifying God would give us a revival of Christian unity and a revival of Christian unity would give us a revival in our churches!
