This teaching is about the importance of unity in light of Acts 2:42-47. Great things happen in the Bible when people are of one accord. The believers stood united in Acts and walked with God which took the move of God’s Word to different continents and languages. If people are not united on right doctrine and practice then the Word doesn’t move. To put out a campfire, one thing you can do is spread the coals; we don’t want to be a campfire that goes out because we are separated. We need to stay unified, and then people who are out in the cold will want to join the bonfire. We are likeminded on the Word according to the risen Christ, and we can’t let guilt separate us from God or the believers. Love is proactive and helps to prevent practical errors which can lead to doctrinal error. It keeps things simple when God and His Word are the priority. If the Word is going to move, it’s going to take someone to move it. God moved in Christ Jesus; now it’s our move.
