Unity Among The Brethren Ephesians 4:3 Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace The focus of today's discussion is unity among believers as this unity is patterned after the unity of the Spirit-God's Spirit. Unity among the brethrens is made possible through the indwelling Spirit of God. Just as the Godhead operates in perfect togetherness so must the body of Christ-the church. There is unity among the brethrens because of the oneness of God; one faith, and one body. Each member has his or her distinct calling for the edification of the body of Christ (vv 4-5, 12). It is noteworthy to say that God in His divine wisdom made provisions for any disharmony that may arise by instilling His Spirit in each believer to bring peace. God is a God of peace, love and harmony not confusion. Therefore, each believer is to operate in the Spirit of God thus assuring unity as we witness Christ to a dying world. Allow me to say that neither human efforts nor organizations can bring unity among the brethrens without the Spirit of God. With that being said, all churches operating in harmony has God as its head and His Spirit as its guide. Church, we have our example for unity-the Godhead. Comments are welcome.
