Sermon Notes
Unity ~ Psalm 133

The sermon in one sentence: Life in Jesus is an upward journey on which God leads us to unity in Christ.

  • We should pursue unity with other followers of Jesus because it’s good and life-enriching (133:1-3)
    • Unity is togetherness built on mutual purpose and benefit
    • Godly unity is founded on Jesus and his word
  • Ways to foster unity
    • Stay centered on Jesus and his word—helps us to remember it’s not “me vs. you” but “our life together in Christ”
    • Pray for others and especially pray for those you struggle with
    • Look to serve rather than to be served (Philippians 2)
    • Celebrate the diversity of the church family (1 Cor 12)
