Unity

Imagine if one part of your body decided to go off in a different direction from the rest of your body simply because of a disagreement. Your body would render itself ineffective. The parts of your body were created to operate in unison. The same holds true for the Church, which is the Body of Christ. Members of the Church are to work in unity. Christians are empowered to impact their environment. To do so demands unity.

Everything in the Bible was meant to unite us. Yet all too often Christians major in minor differences. For instance, one group believes their form of worship is right; while another maintains theirs is the right way to worship. There is no single style of worship that is correct. All of us do not have to be alike or do things the same way. Rather, we must learn to agree to disagree without attacking one another. With Christ as our head, we are unified in Christ (Galatians 3:28). There is power in unity.

Unity empowered the Israelites to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem in a miraculous fifty-two days, even in the face of mounting opposition (Nehemiah 6:15). Kingdom work demands unity. We can achieve great things for the Kingdom of God when we come together in unity.

Ephesians 4:3 says, “Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” The word endeavor means to make a great effort, to exert oneself. Each of us are to work diligently to maintain unity. It is a continuous and conscious effort. Division slows progress and hinders individual and collective growth. At a time when division is rampant throughout our country, now it the time for the Church to unite. Unity advances the Kingdom of God and allows the free reign of the Holy Spirit here on earth.

Members of the Church are to operate in unison. We were created to be at peace with one another. Therefore, each of us has a responsibility to preserve unity. By doing so, we will grow into a mature Body of Christ. While it may sound cliché, together we really can achieve more. Imagine all the Church could accomplish when we come together in unity. The world would never be the same! Let’s make sure we are all doing our part to preserve unity.

Until next time…Be blessed!
