To walk together in unity, we must love beyond society’s boundaries. We must intentionally go out of our way to love and serve others, in spite of what we are experiencing in our own lives. We can go faster alone, but together we can go farther and higher.
When believers in the church body are divided, it communicates to the world that the message of salvation in Jesus Christ is subject to amendment and/or discontinuity. The unity of the church body must model the unity of the gospel. No wonder Jesus was so adamant when He prayed “May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent me,” (John 17:21). Our lack of unity as Christians affects the world’s understanding of the testimony about Jesus Christ.
Only God can unite people who represent every culture, tongue, color, and class. When a large diverse family works together as one, they become a witness to people who are also seeking unity and love.
