Within the church, in our country and in the world at large, we are so divided. Issues like politics, race and gender seem to constantly marginalise us from each other. But scripture calls us to be unified as the body of Christ.
But what does unity even mean or look like?
Resources: what we have – all of what we have – belongs to Christ and we should be sharing our resources with those who are in need.
Attitude: God declares his love for ALL people, so no one person can think themselves above another. No race is better. No gender is better. No social position is better. We are all equal in God’s love and we need to treat each other with an attitude of equality that stems from love.
Action: We can all aware of the factors that separate us. But what are we doing about it? What are we doing when we see those who are poor? What are we doing when we see the rejected in society? There is always something we can do.
Unity come from combining resources, attitude and action with the love that Christ has shown us so that we can help each other.
Listen to this sermon and let me know of ways you think we can be more unified.
