Eph 4:25 (AMP) Therefore, rejecting all falsity and being done now with it, let everyone express the truth with his neighbor, for we are all parts of one body and members one of another.
Dozie had some embarrassing financial challenges. For some reason, he did not want his brethren at church to know about this. He felt more comfortable sharing his challenges with his siblings.
But because they worked in the same place, Dozie had to confide in a Church brother called Kenny. Kenny was so concerned because he knew how much stress Dozie was going through. He decided to take out time to pray about Dozie’s problems. The solution to Dozie’s problem came through Kenny.
Your Christian brothers and sisters should be the closest persons to you because we are all parts of one body. We have died to the flesh and our new life is in Christ, the head of our body. Our relationship with one another as brethren should be characterized by truth and love.
There is so much power available when Christian brethren agree on an issue in prayer (see Mat 18:19).
One of the greatest hindrances to unity in the body is falsity. It is so dangerous that God had to aggressively purge it out of the first Church congregation in Jerusalem. Ananias and Sapphira lost their lives because of this (see Acts 5:1-11).
Go into today knowing that the most important people in your life are your Christian brothers and sisters. They are also very influential because they can influence heaven on your behalf the most (see Mat 18:18).
