Today we are featuring Church & Culture and one of the key aspects to a Church with a healthy Culture is Unity. One of the key aspects to Anzac Day is that it brings our nation together more than most other activities in the year. Unity is so important! This attribute is invaluable as we consider the witness of the church to the community, Jesus pointed this out in John 17:20-21.
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” NIV
The Apostle Paul outlines very clearly what is required for Unity in Ephesians. It begins with you and it begins with myself.
“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:2-3.
Please continue to pray for a culture of unity to become even more prevalent within our Church.
