Prayer for the Church: Pursuing Unity

August 12, 2020
Ephesians 4:3 (ESV): eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

A core doctrinal foundation must never be sacrificed for the sake unity. That, however, is not what is being referred to here. The command to pursue unity here is upon the foundation of sound doctrine. It is amazing how quickly we find reasons other than core doctrine to shun one another. Inherent with this command is the idea that this is something we need to be urged to do it because we would not naturally pursue it. Also, inherent here is that we must know what core doctrine is in order to base our unity upon that.

Lord, today I pray that you would remind our church of its need to walk worthy of its calling by diligently pursuing unity in the body of Christ. Show us when we make excuses and urge us to be about this important work of pursuing unity.

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.
