“Help These Women”

To me “help these women” are the most embarrassing words in the Bible! That’s because two women, Euodia and Syntyche, caused such serious problems in their church that the apostle Paul had to intervene. What did he do?

Paul spoke directly to the two ladies, imploring them to be of the same mind “in the Lord,” that they keep the peace, that they live in love. Paul advised them to put aside their differences for the grander cause of the common good of the church at Philippi and the body of Christ.

Paul praised these two women. Paul recalled how they labored shoulder-to-shoulder with him for the cause of the gospel and had served with many workers for Christ.

Paul called upon others in the church to “help these women.” He encouraged their involvement in helping to solve the problem.

My friend, pray! Pray that you won’t be the cause of any disruptions in your church and that you won’t hinder the work of the church for the cause of Christ. Ask God to help you live in unity.

God, please keep me from being a division in Your body of believers. Help me to bring unity and harmony to those around me. I want to be a peacekeeper in Your name. Amen.
