Unity … is being in harmony and of one spirit.

It is a created reality … and always a fragile creation.

All it takes to be against unity … is to simply not be for it.

As delicate as it is, it is solely the reason why relationships thrive, teams find synergy and churches/families are strong. Take unity away and all of these fail … in epic fashion.

Sadly, we often fail to see the value of unity at the level it should be valued, which is tragic!
Because of this, we tolerate actions and reactions that put unity under great threat and we have very little pause in allowing these things to happen.

Words that are spoken, decisions that are taken … each one is either promoting unity or pulling it down.

The truth is, we reminded over and over again in the scriptures that unity is required for the favor of God to flow. It is the primary focus of the prayer of Jesus in John 17 and it entirely defines us as Christ-followers.

Guidelines, in a May 22, 2017 devotional states this, “Centuries ago, Solomon reflected on the failure of humanity when he wrote that God hates some things more than others and that we should take careful note of them: “Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers” (Proverbs 6:17-19).

How much more can be said really?

God calls His people to unity, so it is important to make every effort to live together in harmony with others.

When unity is lost … we really only have one task … and that is to restore it as quickly as is possible. To do anything less exposes us and those in community with us to great peril.

▪ Every small issue is magnified or manipulated
▪ Wisdom and grace will go away
▪ Looming devour and defeat will linger
▪ There is no possibility that Christ’s presence or calm peace can prevail

Recognize this, receive this and most of all … respond to this with a resounding yes!

It matters, more than we could ever know or fully understand!

I know I am in … and you?
