Being a Christian is less about a loud proclamation and more about living as an example of Christ. As some people try to understand Christianity and emulating Christ, Gary Hargrave has released yet another book to help understand the path to God through Christ.
Gary has been preaching and is a role model for many worldwide. When he preaches, he talks about being united in Christ. Through Hargrave Ministries, Gary has provided more than one avenue for people to come together, just as Christ wanted. In this light, he wrote Tearing Down the Walls, a book about letting go of our divisiveness as humanity and becoming united.
The New Book Release
Tearing Down the Walls: Expose and Overcome the Spirit of Division is a new book that helps people understand the politics that divide people, overcome them, and coexist together in harmony and love. The book is not limited to the people who follow Gary and his teachings; it is available to anyone interested in tearing down their internal walls. It is an excellent choice for morning devotions globally.
1 Corinthians 12:12 states, “Even as the body of Christ is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, even though they are many are one body, so also is Christ.”
A chapter in one of the many talks about and tries to explain why human beings, no matter the denomination, race, and language, need to come together as one, just as the body of Christ has many parts that join together to make it whole.
In his book, Gary talks about reducing or doing away with many organizations and groups that make us feel different about each other. By separating ourselves from the Ministry, we are essentially making our kingdoms.
Hargrave Ministries is big on bridging the understanding between Jews and Christians because even with our differences, we are the same. When we put our differences aside, we can achieve so much more, give so much more, and support others so much more—the best part about overcoming our fear that we inspire others to do the same.
At the beginning of the book of Acts, just after Jesus had risen, he told his disciples to go forth and spread the gospel. He also told them to wait until they were filled with the Holy Spirit to do so. The Holy Spirit is the church’s and hence our guide in this world. When we each bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit, being kind to one another or having self-control becomes a part of our daily lives. One of the commands Jesus gave before he left was for the disciples to make it their goal to spread the gospel; therefore, even with our own liking and goals, we ought to remember our goal is to minister Jesus to all the nations.
We Need Each Other As Parts of The Body Do
In the oneness of Christ, we are all individuals who are gifted with different talents and skills. These are the gifts God grants us to support each other, just as the hand feeds the mouth or the legs assist us in walking. It is our chance to better the lives of others and showing that we care. On top of that, there are emotional and mental benefits to the fiver as well.
Take, for instance, last year and a sizeable part of this year when a pandemic is ravaging humanity. The pandemic has cost people their livelihoods, their families and loved ones, and their peace of mind. If anything, this was the one time we saw humanity come together as one.
Giving the example of Jesus Christ and his mission, Gary explains in the book that fulfilling our destinies needs us to lean onto our friends for their support. Christ needed his mother to come to earth as one of us, his disciples, and others who walked the path with him.
That They May Be One
John 17:20-21 talks of all humanity being one. ” that they may all be one; even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send Me.” Just as Christ is one with his Father, humanity should find its purpose in being one with Christ. This message and its expected results are getting lost in what is today’s evangelism. Many people have sought the path of evangelism without first understanding the oneness of Christ and the Father. This ends up creating a disconnect rather than fighting divisiveness.
The Kingdom of God is a twine of relationships. With our family, with the fellowship at church, our communities, and more, we are interconnected and should work together. God made us all in his image and likeness, and all the division we have is a creation of ourselves. The book guides how we can tear down the walls and see ourselves in God’s light; we become more humane towards our neighbors even when they are different.
Division has been associated with tragedies and other tough consequences. The book gives an example of Ananias and Saphira, who were slain for their selfishness and trying to break the oneness. In the Acts of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit descended onto the apostles because they were together as one and waited in the room for something that Christ had promised. They believed in the miracle of the oneness of Christ.
Hargrave Ministries has championed why the church needs to evangelize as one, failure will cause us to continue to experience the discord present for the last 2,000 years.
Gary Hargrave is an accomplished author who has multiple books under his belt. This will be a significant driver for many morning devotions worldwide alongside other publications from Hargrave Ministries.
