Unity Series, Ch. 1: Purity, part 7

“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God.” Philippians 1:27, 28

Standing firm in one spirit.

Contending as one man.

The real subject is the Gospel but notice the words attached to “one.” They are “standing firm” and “contending.” These are warlike words. It is necessary in war for all allies to be one, not enemies of each other.
