Philippians 1:27

"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel."
Philippians 1:27

I think that the more we become united, the more we become like this. Whether we're together or apart, we're still working for the same things, and making God our top priority. In so many ways, even if we haven't seen each other for years, we're still of "one mind" in how we approach the world and tapping into that "one spirit," listening to God and trying to do his will. Even when we feel isolated or alone spiritually, we can remember that there are other people that are part of us, even if they are physically distant. Today, let's do all we can to unite with God, and thereby with so many other people who are moving towards that same goal. Even if we're utterly alone, we can still be surrounded by that love, and part of that unity. Let's make our conversation match that oneness today, and not jar ourselves out of alignment with the whole by our words or actions.
