Pillars of Christian Character: Unity

Romans 12:4-5 NKJV
“4 For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.”
What kind of impact would the church of Jesus Christ have on this globe if only we were united and in one accord? The effects would be unbelievable and nothing short of a miracle, nothing the world has ever experienced before. The lone ranger syndrome and the my church verses your church is what has weakened us.
God’s design is for us to work as a body meaning working in unity. The body is made up of many members just as our key scripture states and they all do not have the same functions but they work in unity towards one goal. This should be the case with the us the church. Unity is not uniformity.
This is what
Psalms 133 says;
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. 3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing— Life forevermore.
Divide and conquer, that’s the strategy the enemy uses to defeat us and sadly many times we help him to accomplish his goal. Gods desire is that we will love one another and in so doing stay united in the cause that he has given us. When we are united we are able to achieve more and God is glorified. It was never Gods intention for us to be divided along denominational lines but that we would work together in unity as one body.
What does unity of the church look like to you? Unity is not uniformity, what does that statement mean to you? If the church was to walk in unity, what kind of impact would that have in the nation?
