We desperately need more unity in the body of the Messiah, His bride and church.

The New Testament places strong emphasis on the importance of Christian unity. Paul exhorts the Ephesian Christians to maintain “the unity [Gk. henótēs] of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Eph. 4:3). Henotes is also translated “oneness”. Are we eager to be one with our brothers and sisters?

I therefore, a prisoner for the Master, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the Messiah’s gift.

ESV (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Ephesians 4:1–7
