Unity Reflects Jesus' Heart for the Church

1 Peter 3:8 (NLT)

Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude.
In John 17, Jesus' prayer for the unity of His followers is a profound expression of His desire for the church to be one, as He and the Father are one. This unity is not merely a superficial agreement but a deep, spiritual connection that transcends differences. The early church faced challenges of division, just as the church today does, which serves as a reminder that striving for unity is an ongoing process that honors Jesus' prayer. It is a call to action for every believer to actively work towards reconciliation and harmony within the body of Christ, recognizing that unity is both a gift and a responsibility.
