The unity of the Spirit

Daily Light Devotions - July 31 - Evening

The unity of the Spirit.

eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit--just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call-- 1 

For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. 2 

A Song of Ascents. Of David. Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! 3 

Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 4

3. Psa 133:1,2; 
4. 1 Pet 1:22
