UNITY (The state of being united or joined as a whole;  The combination or arrangement of parts into a whole)

Remember :   Philippians 2:5  “In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.”

JESUS PRAYS FOR  ALL BELIEVERS

John 17:20-26  “ My prayer is not for them alone.  I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,  that all of them may be one,.….  22-23 “…that they may be one as we are one– so that they may be brought to complete unity. 26   “I have made you known to them…….in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

UNITY  in the  BODY

1 Cor 12:12-31 “Just as a body,  though one,  has many parts,  but all its many parts form one body,  so it is with Christ.  20  “As it is,  there are many parts,  but one body.  25  “..so our body would not be divided.  God wanted the different parts to care the same for each other.”  27 “ …You are the body of Christ,   and each one of you is a part of it.”

ALL THINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH WOULD BE JOINED TOGETHER IN CHRIST

Eph  1:9-10  (3-14)   “he made known to us the mystery of his will—– to bring unity to all things in  heaven and on earth under Christ.”

Eph 1:13 (ncv)  So it is with you….in Christ,  God put his special mark of ownership on you….

Eph 1:15-23  PAUL’S PRAYER:  (ncv)  …God ..made Christ the head over everything for thechurch,      

“ The church is filled with Christ, and Christ fills everything in every way.”

Eph 4:3    “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Eph 4:4-5  There is one body and one Spirit…one hope ,  one Lord ,  one faith,  one baptism,…. 13  ...until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature,  attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. 15  “.we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, ..Christ.  16       The whole body depends on Christ and all the parts of the body are joined.

Col  3:14 (1-17) (ncv) “Even more than all this,  clothe yourself in love. Love is what holds you all together in perfect  unity. 15  “….you were all called together in one body to have peace.  Always be thankful.”
