Unity by Max Lucado

“If unity is the key to evangelism, shouldn’t it have precedence in our prayers? Shouldn’t we, as Paul said, “make every

effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (Eph. 4:3 niv)? If unity matters to God, then shouldn’t

unity matter to us? If unity is a priority in heaven, then shouldn’t it be a priority on earth?

Nowhere, by the way, are we told to build unity. We are told simply to keep unity. From God’s perspective there is

but “one flock and one shepherd” (John 10:16). Unity does not need to be created; it simply needs to be protected.”
