As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.Ephesians 4:4-6 NIV
God is unified.
I am called to live in unity.
God values unity. When sin entered the earth, God had a plan devised to reconcile man through Jesus Christ. Jesus taught in his earthly ministry that we were to love one another and here in Ephesians, Paul, calls us to live in unity with other believers. There will always be things that divide, but we are challenged to cross the aisle and get curious with others instead of being judgemental and fueling divisiveness, especially within the church.
A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, You are the great unifier. I thank you for the gift of reconciliation through your son, Jesus Christ. Lord continue to help me to see how I can support unity in my community. Show me how to find ways to bring people together instead of supporting separation (consciously or unconsciously). Help me to be ok with the discomfort of unfamiliar environments and bridge the gap… In Jesus’ name. Amen.
