Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10

The fact that Paul is pleading with the saints at Corinth should have gotten their (our) attention.  As saints we all have the same Spirit indwelling us and conforming us to the image of Christ.  The more we are conformed to Christ the more we’ll be of the same mind by striving to receive truth from the Word of God whenever we disagree on a matter.  Disagreements are inevitable but divisions are not only unnecessary but contrary to the will of God for all true believers.  May we endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace by striving to stay unified with one another.  When we “put on Christ” we’ll recognize our need of humility and the greater good for our brother or sister enabling us to be perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgement.
