There is rarely a mention of the body of Christ without the mention of unity.
Here, unity is achieved through two things: peace and thanksgiving.
When we have peace,
When we are assured that our salvation is secure and can never be taken away,
When we know we have a place and a purpose …
We won’t be jockeying for position,
Or working to protect our turf,
Or trying to make ourselves look good.
When we are thankful,
When we receive with open hands and humble hearts,
When we understand that without the grace and mercy of God we would have nothing …
We won’t be overcome by a sense of entitlement,
Or distracted by our discontent,
Or rendered useless to the Kingdom by our envy.
Peace. Thanksgiving. Unity.
