Unity In Jesus

In an era where culture is inundated with divisive ideas that polarize and separate us, Jesus calls us to love one another, defining that love as how the world would know we are His followers. We must focus on what we have in common and model what it looks like when we respect differences rather than letting them divide us.

Today’s Scripture
Psalm 133:1-3 NIV
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head… For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

Ephesians 4:3 NIV
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Additional Scripture
John 17:20-23

Prayer + Reflection
1. Pray that our love would be an effective witness to the watching world.

2. Pray for creative ways to tangibly show the love of Christ to our neighbors and communities in partnership with other churches in our cities.

3. Pray for wisdom to lead toward greater unity within our churches.

Family Moment
Sometimes loving others can be hard! The good news is that Jesus doesn’t expect us to be able to love others on our own. Followers of Jesus are filled with the Holy Spirit, and He gives us the power to love. The Holy Spirit brings us together and unifies us as one community.

Read John 17:20-23. When you hear the word “one,” encourage family members to shout, “Go unity!” Take time to share what stood out to you in the verses. How can you show God’s love to others this week?
