Psalm 133:1-3 NIV
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is
as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. FOR THERE
THE LORD BESTOWS HIS BLESSING, EVEN LIFE
FOREVERMORE.
John 17:11 NCV
“I am coming to you; I will not stay in the world any longer. But they
are still in the world. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of
your name, the name you gave me, so that they will be ONE, just as
you and I are ONE.”
Luke 11:17 NCV
But knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom that is
divided against itself will be destroyed. And a family that is divided
against itself will not continue.”

Principles of Freedom:

  1. Go back to the cross.
    Ephesians 2:14-16 NIV
    For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and
    has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting
    aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His
    purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two,
    thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God
    through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.
  2. See people through the lens of grace instead of race.
    Galatians 3:26-29 NKJ
    For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many
    of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is
    neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither
    male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are
    Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the
    promise.
    Galatians 5:14 NLT
    For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love
    your neighbor as yourself.”
  3. Practice the heart of serving one another.
    John 13:14-17 NLT
    “And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you
    ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to
    follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not
    greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than
    the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things,
    God will bless you for doing them.”
