An Appeal to U.N.I.T.Y.
Paul begins his first letter to the Corinthians with an appeal to unity.
“I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ...be united.” (1 Corinthians 1:10)
Jesus said that our unity is critical to our witness to the world. It is our love for one another that demonstrates to the world that we are followers of Jesus.
But it is not always easy. Maintaining unity can be a fragile thing.
Divisions...sexual immorality...differences of opinion...issues of worship...and doctrinal issues all threatened the unity of the church in Corinth. It all sounds rather contemporary.
This fall, we are going to spend time in 1 Corinthians 1-4. As Paul makes his appeal to unity, he appeals to five actions we need to take to help us maintain our unity in Christ.
U – Unceasing gratitude
N – Never lose sight of the cross
I – Impart the wisdom of Christ
T – Together we build
Y – Yield to instruction
