Counterworking the Lord's purpose

   Quotations from the writings of Ellen White with the phrase . . .
Counterworking  the  Lord's  purpose
Related phrase:    counterwork the work of God  ( 26 )
In loving sympathy and confidence God's workers are to unite with one another. He who says or does anything that tends to separate the members of Christ's church, is counterworking the Lord's purpose. Wrangling and dissension in the church, the encouragement of suspicion and unbelief, are dishonoring to Christ. God desires His servants to cultivate Christian affection for one another. True religion unites hearts, not only with Christ, but with one another, in a most tender union. When we know what it means to be thus united with Christ, and with our brethren, a fragrant influence will attend our work wherever we go.  {GW 484.1}
