Oneness, easier said than done.
Unity may come easier for some, depending on how your bent. Some of you may love being on a team, while others of you consider yourself more of a lone wolf. Regardless of your natural bent, we are called to oneness as believers in Jesus Christ!
Summer can be a deterrent from the very thing we are called to as believers. Summer often affords the ability to break out of our normal routines. Our schedules are more flexible, vacations are often taken, the demands of life often simply reduce during summer. Don’t get me wrong, a break from routine is very welcome, and much of the time extremely needed! However, we must continue to keep our focus on what God requires of us most. Is it time for us to refocus our focus on unity?
“For there is one body and one spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.” Ephesians 4:4 (NLT)
God is not asking us whether we are an introvert or an extrovert, or even an ambivert. He is not asking us which animal we are, on the personality profile test. He is not even asking us which number we are on the Enneagram. God is telling us that if we are to shine his light to this world as believers in him, then we must walk in unity, serve in unity, fellowship in unity…we must be one in Him!
As we finish up the last few weeks of this summer series, let’s focus on making the truth of this passage come to life by committing it to our mind and heart and by putting it into practice!
Doing life together, joining in community together, serving together, all to the glory of God!
