The church today continues to struggle with the concept and practice of true unity and oneness in Christ. Contextual distinctions aside, with our churches divided socially, racially, and theologically, how will the world know the true witness of Christ – the union of all things in Him for the glory of His name and the salvation of His people? As we learn in this message, the measure of our spiritual unity determines the true health and maturity of the church.
Questions for Reflection:
- If you were to make a list of what determined a “healthy & mature” church, what would have been on that list?
- How does “spiritual unity” change your understanding and role of the church?
- Based on the list in Ephesians 4:11, what do you think your spiritual gift contribution might be in the body of Christ?
