What brings people together or what unites people? Well, for the Christian, it’s our salvation. I am one with my brothers and sisters in Christ in that we were all saved by the grace of God, we were all forgiven the same way – by the blood of Christ, we all entered the kingdom through the same door – the Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:9).

However, there is not only unity in the body of Christ, but there’s unity in the Godhead. God the Father and God the Son are one in that together they saved us – calling us out of darkness, redeeming us with their love and keeping us in their saving hands for all time now and forever (John 10:28-29). Jesus and the Father are one in purpose, and one in essence ultimately.
