20/20 Vision for Unity
As we begin a new year, our biblical purpose and desire as a local church, the Body of Christ, is to be a unifying church.
Unity is the desire of God for His glory and for our good. “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!” (Psalm 133:1) When unity characterizes us as believers in the LORD, we can live out biblical mission with God’s approval and the Spirit’s power. That’s why, in John 17:11;21-23, Jesus prayed that His disciples would experience the same kind of unity that He, as the Son of God, experienced with His Father. Jesus prayed to the Father by the Spirit that His disciples would be unified in character, witness, and glory to God.
