Be a Barnabas
Scripture: Ephesians 4:17–4:32
If we all like the idea of unity, why is achieving it so hard?
Unity does not come naturally to fallen human beings (4.17-19)
- Apart from God, we are all the problem people.
- Apart from God, there can never be lasting unity.
The Prerequisites of Unity (4.20-24)
- Unity is only possible when we are first made new in Christ
- We need God to rewrite our software.
A New Way of Life (4.25-32)
- Choose to live according to your new software.
- Choose to build others up (4.29).
Take Home Idea: We are better together when we live according to the new attitude of mind that we all have in Christ Jesus
