We live in a season of rampant disunity. Division, separation and polarization foster anger, frustration and suspicion. The truth is, to one degree or another, it has always been this way. The great separation began in the Garden and continues to this day.
Jesus, with amazing audacity yet recognized authority (Matthew 7:29), steps into history and says “I Am” the Way, the Truth and the Life”. Only He can take the diversity of various people groups, the uniqueness of various personalities and create a living Body (the Church) where unity can begin to take root and grow. Without Him we can’t - Without our participation, He won’t.
This Sunday we will look at the Ephesian call and road map to build unity.
