UN1TY Sep 20, 2020 - In the past, crisis has brought unity. The bombing of Pearl Harbor, the horrific events of 9/11, various natural disasters, in the past these types of events created unity in our country. They brought us together. But, in recent days with COVID-19, the death of George Floyd, rioting and the like it seems that we are no longer “one nation under God." We’re no longer the United States, but the divided states. The same seems to be happening in the church. Why is that? One of the top goals of the Devil is to divide. The Holy Spirit moves and works in the church when it is unified. Jesus prayed before going to the cross that we would be one. In This Series United Home Sep 20, 2020 | Robert Watson A house divided will not stand. The irony of unity and peace is that we have to fight for it. In this series we’ve learned truth unites. What are the family values in your house that everyone unites around? It is right, good and Biblical to regularly discuss what it means to be part of your family. The Power of One Sep 27, 2020 | Chad Moore Before going to the cross Jesus prays in the Garden of Gethsemane for his disciples and for all future believers. In this prayer he prays that we would be “one”. More so, he prays that we would be one in the same way that he and the Father are one. Unity is a big deal to Jesus. Unity is not person driven, but purpose driven. Unity is found in truth. Truth unites. The Devil of Divison Oct 04, 2020 | Chad Moore The Devil is all about division. Especially in the church. One of his main goals is to rip apart the body of Christ. How does he do this? Through lies. He wants us to believe “our truth” and hold our opinions and preferences above everything else. Reality is there is no such things as “your truth”. Truth is objective and therefore lives outside of you. Truth is God’s view on any subject. Truth unifies and frees, while lies divide and enslave. United Church Oct 11, 2020 | Chad Moore One of the prayers that we want to pray often is the prayer for unity. The church is to be diverse, but not divided. One of the most common themes of the New Testament is unity and most of the epistles are written to address division, bring truth with clarity and in that bring unity. How do we in the church from different backgrounds, different races and different cultures find unity in Jesus United Marriage Oct 18, 2020 | Robert Watson The mystery of marriage is that two are now one. This is a moment in time at the wedding and a lifelong process in the marriage. This is both a joy and a challenge. Moses, Paul and Jesus call it a “mystery”. Just as Satan desires to divide and destroy the church he also desires to divide and destroy our marriages and families. Truth unifies. A united marriage is both powerful and fulfilling.
