The Marks of a Christian - Live in Harmony with One Another
If you are a follower of Jesus, your life should have outward marks that reflect your inward convictions. These marks signify that you live your life in a way that imitates Christ. Living in harmony with one another is another distinguishing mark of a Christian (Romans 12:16). Think about harmonious music. How it soothes our souls and fills our hearts with peace. The same holds true in relationships. Living in harmony with others breeds unity, health, and wholeness. It’s true in all our relational endeavors. How do we cultivate harmony? By first sowing it. By complimenting others when they use their gifts. By cheering them on when they experience success. By remaining void of any envy and strife, and experiencing unadulterated joy for them instead. Our Father loves to watch His children live in harmony with one another. And as we diligently seek harmony and unity with others, our relationships will flourish. The world will want to know why. And we can point them to Jesus, the author and giver of all harmony in life.
