Community that Seeks Unity
One of the results of the fall is fractured relationships. We live in a culture that promotes success at all costs, even if it means going it alone. The Biblical model invites Jesus' followers into an intentional connection with one another. This requires an investment of time, energy, and openness of heart to others. This is especially challenging in the face of differences and the reality of how we hurt one another. Invite people to keep seeking unity in the community, even in the midst of all that seeks to pull people apart. After all, Jesus saw the unity of the church as a primary means of reflecting Him to the world.
