There can be no solidarity between believers until we have first partaken of solidarity with our Heavenly Father, solidarity with our Lord and Savior Jesus, and solidarity with the Holy Spirit.

I have learned that we carry with us, a trademark ™, John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

This trademark is the very Love of God stamped upon our heart and soul, Romans 5:5:  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

This Love of God that abides in us creates a unity between me and my God, a unity between me and the followers of Jesus. This unity is evidenced by our actions towards our Heavenly Father, and our actions towards our fellow man.

He That Loves God

John 14:21-24

21. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

He That Loves Man

Romans 13:8-14
8. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
11. And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
12. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

And so, the bond of unity is created between men and God, by the Love we have received from the presence of the Holy Spirit. And the bond of unity between the followers of Jesus is likewise created and maintained by the Love we have received through the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Never forget that the very same Love that God exercised when He gave His only begotten Son, is the very same Love that we have received from the presence of the Holy Spirit which has been given unto us. We must never fall into the trap where we use the Love of God as an excuse to sin against God or man.

It Is Written:

Galatians 5:24-25
24. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Titus 2:11-15
11. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13. Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14. Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
15. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
