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?
