Let’s consider how to provoke one another to love and good works,
not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Be of the same mind one toward another. Don’t set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Don’t be wise in your own conceits.
Finally, all of you be like-minded, compassionate, loving as brothers, tenderhearted, courteous,
See how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in unity!
Beloved, if God loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another.
Now I beg you, brothers, look out for those who are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and turn away from them.
Now I beg you, brothers, through the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Now accept one who is weak in faith, but not for disputes over opinions.
being eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Honor widows who are widows indeed.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the middle of them.”
Now the God of perseverance and of encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus,

But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son, cleanses us from all sin.
Day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they took their food with gladness and singleness of heart,
praising God and having favor with all the people. The Lord added to the assembly day by day those who were being saved.
All these with one accord continued steadfastly in prayer and supplication, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring and heirs according to promise.
For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don’t have the same function,
so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another,
Most certainly I tell you, he who receives whomever I send, receives me; and he who receives me, receives him who sent me.”
