The solution to divisions among Christians

June 1, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

And they sang a new song, saying,

“Worthy are you to take the scroll

            and to open its seals,

for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God

            from every tribe and language and people and nation.”

–Revelation 5:9

I heard about two Christians who were on a luxury liner. Both of them spoke different languages, but they were about the only Christians there. So while the rest of the passengers were having a party one night that they weren’t comfortable being a part of, these two Christians decided to take a walk.

As they strolled along the deck, each one with their Bible in their hands, they realized, of course, that they shared the same faith. They tried to communicate to no avail. Finally one of them looked the other right in the eye and said, “Hallelujah!” This prompted the other one to say, “Amen!” They immediately understood each other!

The great songwriter Charles Wesley said, “O for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer’s praise!” And when you get to heaven, those millions upon millions who have gathered there, saved by Jesus Christ, will praise Him forever. The misunderstandings and miscommunications we have today will be forever washed away!

In this world, there is much that divides us. But as you anticipate the world that’s to come, look forward to the day when every barrier will be broken down and all the faithful will worship the Lord forever!

WHILE THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT DIFFERENTIATE BELIEVERS TODAY, THANK GOD FOR OUR COMMON FAITH THAT MAKES US ONE AND GIVES US HOPE THAT ONE DAY, WE’LL BE PERFECTLY UNITED FOREVER!
