Jude 1:18-19
“…In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires. These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.” 
Those who follow their own desires sometimes want to do so from the church pew. Rather than going their own way, they instead stick around just closely enough to cause division.
Unity comes from Spirit-led desires and a priority on the health of the Body instead of a focus on self. 
Being ‘in the church’ is not enough, if my heart and my life are not surrendered to God. No matter how spiritual I sound, the outcome will be division and discord if my desires are not surrendered to the Spirit.
Natural instincts will not achieve the Spirit’s desires for my life.
This week, I need to choose to surrender my desires to God so that I could be an agent of unity, and not discord. 
God, thank you for the leading of your Spirit! Help me to daily submit my desires to yours, so that You would be glorified in my life.
