Why We Don’t Have To Agree To Be Unified

Unity doesn’t mean we have to agree it just means we are united around a common goal.

On Sunday at Element Church we finished up our sermon series called “Won’t You Be My Neighbor”.  In this series we talked about how we can be evangelists by simply being good neighbors.  Evangelism includes what we say, but it’s so much more than that.  To be a good neighbor, to evangelize, it all starts with having the right attitude, the attitude of Jesus.

When our attitudes are correct then the right actions will follow and hopefully that will lead us to opportunities to tell people about Jesus.  Because we do want people to know about Jesus we then pray for the boldness to talk about Him when the opportunity arises.  So this last Sunday, after talking about our attitudes, actions, words, and prayers we ended our discussion talking about our church.  How can the church be a good neighbor?

I preached from Acts 4:32-35 and we said, “The church is made up of neighbors who make the church a neighbor.”  In this passage we saw the unity of the local church, their generosity and their commitment to the Gospel.  In the clip below I talk about unity.  What does it mean that we are united?  It may not mean what you think.  Unity doesn’t mean we have to agree and unity does not equal uniformity, it means we are united around a common goal.  You can watch full sermons HERE.
