We Are Better Together!
This Sunday will be the second of four messages being preached at Faith on Hill about Christian unity. But we are not alone! Nine other churches in our community are doing the exact same series… and that’s on purpose!
I firmly believe that we will flourish and grow best as humans when we live in God’s ways. For the follower of Jesus Christ, part of God’s ways is to be united with God and his people: the Church. If I live in isolation from the church, I will diminish instead of flourish. In the same way, if our church lives in isolation from other churches we will be weak when we could be strong.
As we move forward in this discussion of Christian Unity, both our need for it and how to obtain it, I want to leave you with a few verses of scripture to consider and a few questions to ask as you pray to God for how we can all grow in this part of our lives.
Bible Verses to Consider:
John 17:20-26; Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:19-25
Questions to consider during prayer:
Father God, please show me how I can be more unified with you? Please show me how to live in your blessing and strength as a human in this world.
Holy Spirit, am I living in Unity with my church family? How can I bless others as you have blessed me?
Jesus my Lord, since the need of this lost world is so great, how can we at Faith on Hill best serve you with all of your church in Milwaukie, Oak Grove and Gladstone?
On Earth as it is in Heaven,
