- Ephesians 4:1-6
There exists a unity between believers in Jesus Christ. This unity finds its basis in Christ and transcends all aspects of human relation. Unity between believers transcends nationality, societal position, and gender (Galatians 3:26-29). In Christ, Christians are unified into one body. Each member of the body stands as a child of God and heirs according to the promise of eternal life in Christ.
Some may say that they do not feel this unity with other Christians. Please allow me to make one suggestion.
Begin by relying upon God that there is a unity among believers. You may not feel it or experience it now but feelings and experience are not as important as fact. The fact is that God unifies His people with the common bond of the blood of Christ. What I mean is that Christians are unified because they share salvation through Jesus Christ. That is a truth to which we should hold. As God's people relate to each other based upon the fact that they share redemption through Jesus, they begin to feel and experience unity.
