Charles Stanley (March-14-2020) Daily Devotional: Living Out Our Unity in Christ.

Jesus knew the importance of unity in the church, and in one of His last recorded prayers, He asked the Father for it three times (John 17:11; John 17:20-23).To honor Jesus’ prayer, let’s look at several aspects of our faith that unify us as believers:

One body. God adopts people into His family without regard for race, gender, or denomination. Trust in Jesus Christ is all that matters (Gal. 3:28).

One Spirit. All Christians are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. We’re different on the outside, but as believers, we all have the Spirit to empower and guide us.

One hope. As believers, we share a common hope—the return of Jesus and life in heaven with Him.

One Lord.  Jesus’ lordship extends over all people. We should submit to His authority in every area of life.

One faith. Believers are united in one faith, which is founded on several basic truths: Jesus is God; He lived a sinless life, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven, where He’s seated at God’s right hand.

By learning to see what we have in common, we can more easily overlook our differences. Seeing our unity, people will be ready to hear the good news that God offers a way to have peace with Him and with others.
