Gracefully Overcoming

Living in the Confidence and Hope Found in Christ Alone!

Pursuing Unity

“Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose (Phil. 2:2).”

“It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the bridegroom’s friend is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success (Jn. 3:26).”

“Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all! (Rom. 12:16)”

One of the most important church responsibilities I have is found within this verse – church unity.

Loving one another.

Working together with our focus intentionally being on Christ.

I can only do this, as I deliberately spend time with my Savior Jesus, praying, seeking His grace and strength, and learning to rely on Him.

I am a broken woman who hasn’t felt like “I belong” at church in quite some time. This is something that I know only the good Lord can help me to work through – whether it is feeling at home here or somewhere else.

Church unity is needed for my worship, wherever I seek and serve. Reconciliation and healing is still needed.

When I originally wrote this journal entry, I was in such a dreary place. I now know that maybe I may be moving on. I don’t know. But what I do know is – unity is needed with all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus regardless of where I attend service. There still needs to be this pursuit of healing and reconciliation.

And I so look forward to unity in my church relationships. Even if a place doesn’t feel like home, I still desperately need the unity that only Christ can offer to me in every single relationship I have.

Question of the Day: How can you work toward church unity in your relationships?

Memory Verse: Philippians 1:27
