Unity Among God's People

by Pr. Dave Mann

We live in a day when the goal of unity among God’s people is sometimes held suspect since it might mean that we are compromising the truth of God’s Word in order to achieve some sort of superficial unity. Yes, it is important to stand true to what God has revealed to us in the Bible, and we need to hold to those principles. However, we should never forget that Jesus himself prayed that all his believers would be one. The unity of the church is clearly part of God’s will.

The theme of unity appears numerous times through the Bible, several of which are the subjects of our devotions this week. Here is another passage.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:4-6:

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.”
