⁶And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they do will be impossible for them.
“A house divided cannot stand.” This was evident when the men constructing the tower of Babel lost their unity, causing their progress to come to a halt. Unity possesses the power to keep things together and enables the achievement of anything. Consequently, God moved out of His comfort zone because He saw the power of this binding force and thus intervened and sowed discord among the men, resulting in the cessation of their construction. When pursued, unity can lead to remarkable accomplishments. By setting aside personal differences and interests, we can achieve far more than we initially anticipated. The triune union of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit exemplifies this. Jesus affirms this unity by stating, ‘I and the Father are one’ (John 10:30). Jesus simply demonstrates that they are mutually supportive, sharing the same value, nature, omniscience, and purpose.” Unity is the backbone of the church and any other administration/entity.
We have seen so many tremendous results from the work of Christ because He worked in one accord with the Father and thus says; “The works that I do in my father’s name bear witness about me” John:10:25
Simply stated no house or ministry can stand or prosper if there is strife, anger, bitterness, or grudges, anything that is an enemy to unity.
“Live in harmony with each other. Do not be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And do not think you know it all! Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.”
“I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.
Individuals in ministry must maintain cohesion and effectively collaborate, or risk failure. This is precisely why Jesus before this Ascension prayed for unity among the disciples; recognizing that they were entrusted with a task that could only be accomplished through united efforts.
I declare myself adorned with love – an entity that seamlessly binds us all together toward common objectives.
1 Corinthians 1:10
“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”
¹¹And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; ¹²For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: ¹³Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
