Unity that Leads to Maturity

In Ephesians 4:12-16, we see 6 marks of unity in the church:

1. Unified churches are maturing (v. 12)

2. Unified churches are growing in Christlikeness (v. 13)

3. Unified churches are growing out of childish instability (v. 14)

4. Unified churches speak the truth in love (v. 15)

5. Unified churches are connected to Christ (v. 15-16)

6. Unified churches work together for the good of the body (v. 16)

Justin, I am grateful for this sound, Biblical picture of Church unity that stands in contrast to the banter of so many, "Jesus unites, doctrine divides." These are great qualities to pray for Churches to receive from the Lord and walk in- Thanks!
