What Does the Bible Say About Living in Unity? Read it here:
For in Christ Jesus you are ALL sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26-28
I cannot understand why there is so much protesting, fighting, hatred, and racism, in our country right now. Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s always been there, but in my 50+ years on this earth, I have NEVER seen it so bad. It’s not just one. It’s ALL Ethnic Groups and Nationalities, whether we are willing, to admit it or not.WE ALL HAVE THE SAME BLOOD FLOWING THROUGH OUR VEINS! LIVE IN UNITY! Click To Tweet
All are precious in the eyes of God
What is this type of behavior teaching to our children? I already fear for my grandkids, but what about their children? What kind of world are they gonna be living in? In today’s time, bullying is at an all-time high, that we fear to send our kids to school. Come on Y’all, we have kids, that are taking their own life, to stop the pain, that is brought against them. This is so wrong!
Speak Truth in Love
I loved what my patient said to me today. We were discussing this very issue, and she said, she was really afraid, for her grandson to start at a new school due to bullying. Her sweet grandson said, if he gets asked, what race he is, his response will be, “The Human Race.” Amazing that a middle school child can be more grown-up than actual grownups. I am NOT even gonna touch, on political issues, and the division in that area. That is a whole other area, and I’m not looking for a debate.
Living in Unity Means Finding a Way to Co-exist
Everyone is NOT gonna agree, in all areas, but can’t we still show love, towards one another, even if we disagree? There must be a way for us to follow what the Bible says about living in unity with one another. Hatred is taught, you don’t just wake up one day, and say I hate______types of people. Remember the Golden Rule…Do unto others, as you would have them, do unto you?
I can just picture, God, looking down from Heaven, and being disappointed with us. What bothers me, in the worst way, is for someone to say I am a Christian, but at the same time, will degrade another race. I am talking REALLY degrade, and I refuse, to repeat that rubbish. I myself, have been a witness, to the words, coming from their lips.
Professing Christians: You Must Love Your Brother
If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. 1 John 4:20
All that has been on my mind lately is, Lord Please Come, Come today, and end all this.
Use Social Media for Good
I use my Facebook for Encouragement, Inspiration, but mostly sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here lately, however, I have gotten to the point, I hate to even get on there, with ALL the nonsense. But I am certain, that is what Satan wants me to, which I will NOT give him satisfaction. I will say, that I’ve hidden countless people, from my News-feed. I don’t wanna see all that negativity, we have enough of that surrounding us. Y’all when we get to Heaven, there isn’t gonna be, a corner for these people, another for these, etc.
We will all be living in unity in Heaven
I’m afraid that on Judgement Day, many who think they will get through the gate, will NOT. I know I sure don’t want to hear, Depart from me, for I NEVER knew you. What a sad day that will be. Eternity is forever! To live in unity is forever! Scriptures of Reference: Read these Scriptures closely and understand their meaning...God’s Words…Not mine!
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, 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. Ephesians 4:1-3
And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation. Acts 17:26
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 1 John 2:11
The rich and the poor have a common bond, The LORD is the maker of them all. Proverbs 22:2
These also are sayings of the wise To show partiality in judgment is not good. Proverbs 24:23
One Body with Many Members
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12
Opening his mouth, Peter said: “I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation, the man who fears Him and does what is right is welcome to Him. Acts 10:34-35
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3:11
The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The LORD gives light to the eyes of both. Proverbs 29:13
To equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Ephesians 4:12-14
Divisions in the Church
I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Romans 12:16
And he said to them, “You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a man who is a Jew to associate with a foreigner or to visit him, and yet God has shown me that I should not call any man unholy or unclean. Acts 10:28
So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Romans 12:5
For the body does not consist of one member but of many. 1 Corinthians 12:14
A Great Multitude from Every Nation
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. Revelation 7:9
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. Romans 15:5-7

In closing on what does the bible say about living in unity?
Friends, Please search your heart, and ask God to show you, what may be hidden and make a change today. Decide to live in unity with one another. Don’t listen to the lies of Satan. He wants to keep division among us. It’s a battle of Love vs Hate…CHOOSE TO LET LOVE WIN!
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us, and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2
