    Do Not Please Yourself
    The importance of unity cannot be overstated. As followers of Christ, we are united with one heart and one faith, and our duty to one another and the body of Christ is paramount. We must not lose focus on our mission and must bear with the failings of the weak. It is not an option but rather a command. We must be understanding and patient with one another, even when we must lay aside our rights and freedoms. If we lack patience or sympathy or refuse to put our rights aside, then we need to check ourselves because these are the marks and obligations of a true Christian. Jesus Christ is our catalyst and standard. He humbly laid aside his desires for the love of the Father and us.
     
    We must ask ourselves, are we givers or takers? Are we understanding or demanding? Christ has welcomed us with open arms despite our weaknesses and flaws. He has been patient and understanding with us. How can we not do the same for others in Christ? Let us remember how Christ has dealt with and is dealing with us now. He demands unity because we have peace with God and one another through it. As we live in this way, it brings glory to God.

    Maturity, Charity, Unity (Part 2)
    As we mature in our Christian faith, we are called to exhibit charity, which leads to unity. Achieving maturity requires consuming and conforming to God's word and then understanding and practicing it. This process of maturity is not simply a matter of how long you have been a Christian. Charity is not about compromising truth but embodying wisdom, understanding, patience, and grace. Unity is our ultimate goal, involving deep fellowship and caring for one another.
    When navigating our relationships with weaker brothers or those who have convictions that the Bible does not prescribe, we should refrain from passing judgment on non-sinful matters. Patience, humility, and the love of Christ are key in discerning that some things don't rise to the level of sin. Even when we are correct, we must recognize and appreciate where others are spiritually and be teachable ourselves. Through this, we gain a better perspective on the weaker brother.

    Because He Lives
    The resurrection of Jesus Christ was not just a mere occurrence that was fabricated to save faith after his death. It was a promise long foretold in the scriptures, for it has always been a part of God's plan of redemption. Jesus presented himself alive, proving the truth of his resurrection. Although his tomb was empty, he didn't disappear but instead appeared to his followers, filling their hearts with hope and courage. His appearance was a powerful affirmation for those who believe and trust in him. He stayed with them for forty days, giving them a witness to instill confidence in their faith whenever they wavered. His resurrection is the foundation of Christianity, the source of everlasting hope and joy. It assures us that his elect will come to a saving knowledge of our savior. His triumph over death has transformed our lives as Christians, and we are called to share the fullness of the gospel, to proclaim the problem of sin, the penalty we deserve, the provision made for us in a sinless savior, the price paid in the death of Jesus, the proof given to us in the resurrection, and the promise of everlasting life to those who believe and trust him. The resurrection is a testament to his boundless love, as he has given us a witness that we can always look to and may never have to rely on blind faith. Scripture: Psalm 16, Luke 24: 1-49

    Behold, Your King!
    The triumphal entry of Jesus serves as a powerful reminder of His kingship, both past, present, and future. Unlike earthly rulers, Jesus is the epitome of honor, honesty, justice, and protection. But His reign extends far beyond these qualities, as He alone has the power to deliver us from our deepest, darkest enemies. The procession during the triumphal entry is not a celebration of a victory already won, but rather a testament to the absolute certainty of God's unchanging plan. Jesus' untying of the unridden colt is a display of His sovereign and preeminent authority, while His humble choice to ride a donkey colt fulfills a prophecy and reveals His transcending majesty and relatability to us. The laying of cloaks on the road and the shouting of "Hosanna!" demonstrate the reverence, allegiance, and respect that Jesus deserves as the only one who can save us.
    As we reflect on this event, we are reminded that Jesus should be the center of our lives, and we should look to Him as our Savior and King. Is he everything for you and to you?

    Maturity, Charity, Unity
    The message conveyed in these verses is a powerful reminder that as Christians, we are called to foster unity and love among ourselves. We must be mindful of our maturity as believers and how it influences our behavior towards others. It's essential to recognize that we all have areas where we may lack understanding or have weaker faith. In such cases, we should avoid insisting on things that the Bible doesn't declare as sin. To promote unity, we should welcome our brothers and sisters and avoid quarreling over mere opinions. We should accept them with sincerity, care, respect, and genuine love. We should not keep them at a distance, despise them, or treat them as less than Christian. Instead, we ought to approach them with humility and a willingness to learn from one another. When it comes to areas of sin, we have a duty to confront, rebuke, and urge repentance to the Lord in a loving way. In doing so, we must be careful to judge with right judgment and avoid passing judgment on things that Scripture doesn't declare as sin.
    In summary, as Christians, we must strive to foster unity and love among ourselves. We should approach each other with humility, respect, and genuine love, and avoid insisting on matters that the Bible doesn't declare as sin. When necessary, we should confront sin with love and right judgment, always seeking to restore rather than condemn.
