Laura Houck addresses the need to purposefully build bridges with others in the Body of Christ, and draws parallels from the natural realm. Listen.
Unity is powerful, and it gets God’s attention. Scripture tells us that where there is unity, there is God’s blessing, provision, power, and presence.
True Kingdom unity begins at the ground level of relationships. We must maintain unity by learning to successfully overcome sin, conflict and transitions in our relationships. When we continue to walk in agreement with the higher purposes for which our relationships exist, we will see and enjoy the fulfillment of God’s promises and blessings.
The Church is a group of people called together to one purpose. When we gather, there is to be a life flow from the Head (Jesus!) to the Body (the Church!).
Unity is where love and power flow– as we minister the love of God one to another. God is not as concerned with how much we are loved, as He is how much we have loved. Let us gather together looking to give and receive the Love of God.
As we learn to be the Body of Christ and maintain unity, dealing with relationships is of utmost importance.
Relationships may vary in levels of intimacy, but we are to share with one another and grow up into all things. Deepening relationships is a part of our maturity as saints.
