Chapter 3—Individual Responsibility and Christian Unity
We are living in a time when every true Christian must maintain a living connection with God. The world is flooded with sophistries of the enemy, and we are safe only as we learn lessons of truth from the Great Teacher. The solemn work in which we are engaged demands of us a strong, united effort under divine leadership.SpTB09 14.2
The Lord desires His workers to counsel together, not to move independently. Those who are set as ministers and guides to the people should pray much when they meet together. This will give wonderful help and courage, binding heart to heart and soul to soul, leading every man to unity and peace and strength in his endeavors.SpTB09 15.1
Human help is feeble. But we may unite in seeking help and favor from Him who has said, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” Divine power is infallible. Then let us come to God, pleading for the guidance of His Holy Spirit. Let our united prayers ascend to the throne of grace. Let our requests be mingled with praise and thanksgiving.SpTB09 15.3
