Unity - Power, Purpose, Prosperity

Being in unity and being in agreement is one of the most difficult things for us as humans to be able to do. Weather it's trying to decide with your spouse what restaurant you want to eat at, trying to break up a fight that your kids are having over the front seat, or trying to bring two churches together to become one. Unity can be difficult and at times can even feel impossible. With preferences and opinions swirling around in our heads it's easy to miss out on the agreement and the unity that God is calling us into and ultimately we can miss out on the very thing God is doing. God is trying to reach his people, and He's calling us into unity because He knows what that unity will produce in our lives and in our midst. There is power in unity; power to be able to do more and reach more people. There is purpose in unity; when the we make the mission bigger then our preferences it makes unity easy because we know our purpose. And finally there is prosperity in unity; that we recognize that God desires to bless us so we can bless others. As Christ's body we understand the potential that unity has to shape and change the world so we fight for it. We are going to stand unified for what we are for, and not what we are against. And what we are for, is people.

Matthew 18:19 NLT
“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you."
