Jesus was about

breaking down walls


His desire was

and is




One heart

one purpose


All is grace


And who do we think we are

when we coddle a grudge


stacking up those walls

that Christ intended to topple?


And who do we think we are

when we lash out with words bitter


cutting people with gossip

and abusing verbally?


And who do we think we are

thinking our reason is valid


for destroying unity

in the mighty name of self?


Christ’s desires and intentions for us

must be first in our minds


and the more we know Him

the more we will know


His beating heart

for unity

The Measure of harmony you have with every believer will depend on your experience of Christ’s life as your own.



Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.”

– Romans 12:17-19 (MSG)


I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

– Ephesians 4:1,2 (NIV)


The apostle tells us to be eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit….Some Christian fellowships are marred by rivalries between individuals or groups which have been allowed to fester for years.  How can we possibly condone such things?  We need to be “eager” for love, unity and peace, and more active in seeking it.

– John Stott


There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were all called to pursue one hope. There is one Lord Jesus, one living faith, one ceremonial washing through baptism, and one God—the Father over all who is above all, through all, and in all. This God has given to each of us grace in full measure according to the Anointed’s gift

– Ephesians 4:4-7 (VOICE)


If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

– Romans 12:18 (NIV)


But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

– Matthew 6:15 (NIV)
