That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:6)

The apostle Paul recognized the power of Christians working together in many of his letters to the early churches. He urged the Roman believers to accept each other the way Christ had accepted them and said, “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” (Rom. 15:5–6).

Unity with other believers enables us to broadcast God’s greatness and also helps us to endure persecution. Knowing that the Philippians would pay a price for their faith, Paul encouraged them to strive “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God” (Phil. 1:27–28).

Satan loves to divide and conquer, but his efforts fail when, with God’s help, ”Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph. 4:3).

Dear God, please let Christians everywhere experience the blessing of unity in You. Remind us of what we have in common: one hope, one faith, and one Lord—Jesus Christ. Amen.
When I read this I felt it was fitting for what’s been transpiring around us, we must continue coming together in unity with other believers in prayer, in fasting and in conversation, encouraging one another, building each other up in The Lord. There is no time for disrespect, gossip or jealousy amongst the believers. We are called to further the Kingdom and in doing so coming together is what we are called to do. Let us not allow the enemy to divide and conquer. Let us stand strong together. And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
