May 2 - Choice Gleanings

 DAILY READINGS: Numbers 12-13; Proverbs 10; 1 Peter 2

And when they came unto the borders of Jordan…the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar to see to. Joshua:22:10

Building this huge altar was a mistake which almost led to a Jewish civil war. It proves a valuable principle. Unity and the tools that preserve unity are in God's hands. We cannot fabricate it though our own cleverness. The unity of the Church is preserved by the power of the Holy Spirit as Christians pursue a better understanding of Scripture. Unity is not forged by fabricated “altars of witness” such as human creeds and Church traditions (Eph:4:3, 13-15). The closer we draw to Christ the closer we will draw to one another. —W. A. H.

The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord,

She is His new creation by water and the Word. —S. J. Stone
