God is One

trinity3 Unity and Maturity in the Body of Christ

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:1-6(NIV)

 

Through faith we are united despite political affiliation, denomination or cultural preference.

Jesus Prays for All Believers

 My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:20-23 (NIV)

God is the author of unity, especially in the demonstration of the Trinity

 “They’ll Know We Are Christians,”

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord, We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord. And we pray that all unity may one day be restored And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love; They will know we are Christians by our love. We will work with each other, we will work side by side. We will work with each other, we will work side by side. And we’ll guard each one’s dignity and save each one’s pride. And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love; They will know we are Christians by our love. By our love, by our love, And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love. They will know we are Christians by our love. We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand. We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land. And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love They will know we are Christians by our love By our love, by our love. And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love. They will know we are Christians by our love.

 “We Are One in Christ,”

What a wonderful church life, All the saints truly are one, No matter where and who we are,     We are one! Nothing can set us apart, For we have the same life, Although Satan tried and tried,     We are one!

We are, we are, we are one in Christ! Abiding in the true vine, Receiving all the riches of the life divine,     We are one! We are, we are, we are one in Christ! Growing in the tree of life, In Him we fellowship unto eternal life,     We are one!

What a glorious church life, Christ in us has made us one, Eating the tree of life,     We are one! How can we ever depart Such a sweet and blessed life? Christ in us and we in Christ!     We are one!

  “Blest Be the Tie That Binds.”Blest be the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred minds Is like to that above. Before our Father’s throne, We pour our ardent prayers; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts, and our cares. We share our mutual woes, Our mutual burdens bear; And often for each other flows The sympathizing tear. When we asunder part, It gives us inward pain; But we shall still be joined in heart, And hope to meet again.
