Max Lucado – Unity of the Spirit

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Ephesians 4:3 says to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”  The Holy Spirit of God is the mother hen, urging the church to gather together in safety!  We’re never told to create unity but rather to keep the unity the Spirit provides.

Harmony is always an option, because the Spirit is always present.  Gone is the excuse, “I just can’t work alongside so-and-so.”  Maybe you can’t, but the Spirit within you can!  To say otherwise is to say that the Holy Spirit cannot do what he longs to do. “We were all given the one Spirit to drink,” the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:13-14…“even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.”  The Holy Spirit unifies the church, the body.  Let the Holy Spirit do its unification work through you!  And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope in him is unshakable!
