I. THE PEOPLE OF UNITY

Read John 17:20-21a

Satan’s strategy throughout church history has been to destroy unity within the people of God

“To live above with those we love – Oh that will be glory
To live below with those we know – now that’s another story”

Verses in scripture calling for unity:

  • Psalm 133:1
