Why Is Unity Important In The Body of Christ?

April 29, 2013

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

Philippians 2:1-2

Several years ago, there was a lady in our church who needed an urgent blood transfusion. So some members of our church got together and decided they were going to go donate the blood she needed. It saved her life. The blood donors made a card for this dear woman and wrote, “We gave our blood for you because Jesus gave His blood for us.”

It blessed her immensely. And it gave all of us at the church a good perspective on what it means to give ourselves for the sake of one another. We do that when we forgive, when we show favor, and when we give sacrificially to one another. That’s what the body of Christ is all about!

As we look at the early church, we see a group of men and women who really did share life together. There was no physical need that went unmet because they cared so deeply for one another. And with so much individualism in our culture today, we can learn a lot from them!

All believers are united in Christ. And just as you’d miss any part of your body that was cut off, each individual believer is important in the overall function. So be united in Christ with other believers and you’ll experience the joy of sharing life with others.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
