“Behold how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!”

 

Our world shows us so many examples of the power of one: in nature, in team sports, in relationships, in politics. There is value in unity. It benefits the person, the community and the world. When unity is found around a common thing, it offers purpose. Unity can be found in an idea, a place, or a cause, but there is no better example of unity in all of life than the Trinity – One God, in three persons, perfect in power, love and purpose.

God made humans in his own image, which means our image reflects the Trinity. Even more, our life is not only designed to reflect some resemblance of the Godhead, but to live out the unity, love and service as demonstrated within the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God desires we unite with him because we have been created for unity and likeness. It’s in our design. Our character is to be like God’s character and our love is to be like God’s love.

Unfortunately, God’s grand design for humanity was marred by sin. Relationship with Him severed and perfect unity broken. The Biblical scope of the Father’s story is the restoration of fellowship between humans and God and among each other. Christ came to re-unite us to God and to one another. He did this by shedding his blood on the cross and this is good news. We are made ONE in His spirit so the world will know we are Christians by His love. The world in its fallen state may think it has unity, but there is a hole in every person’s heart designed to be filled in union and our communion with the oneness of the Godhead. Christ has made it possible for us to experience the goodness and pleasure of uniting with the one true God, maker of heaven and earth. Sing along with the familiar hymn Holy, Holy, Holy as you reflect on uniting with God’s holiness.[/vc_column_text][us_separator height=”25px” size=”custom”][vc_column_text]
