Strive for Unity


Church Family,

I am so proud of the ministry that our church was able to be a part of this week. We are so blessed to have the leaders and members that we do.

Ephesians 4:1-3 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Unity doesn’t just happen by accident. First, the gospel brings us together. Second, we have to view the gospel and our unity as being greater than our personal desires. Third, we have to strive to maintain unity.

The church has to strive for Unity. We can not be walking in a manner worthy of the gospel while trying to divide the church. The 2 don’t go together. 

I think one way to help strive for unity is to pray for and encourage one another. Can I ask you to think of the areas of disagreement that you have with others? Will you pray for them? Will you consider a way to encourage them this week? 

Reminders:

1) We had a wonderful week with our Missionaries from Toronto, Matt and Scott. I would like to hear your thoughts about their visit? Did anything surprise you? Help you? Disappoint you? Inspire you?

2) Begin inviting others to the Valentine's Banquet Feb. 11th at 6pm.

3) Thank you for your prayers this week. I will tell more about it this Sunday, but each prayer helped. We had a packed room of pastors on Tuesday and built relationships with another church on Wednesday. Keep praying.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian
