The Surprising Joy of Covenant Unity
Psalm 133 (part 2 of 2)
1. There is unique beauty and goodness in the unity of God's covenant blessing, stirring our souls with hope.
“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. - John 17:20–23(ESV)
2. Covenant unity is fragile and elusive, calling us to be Gospel-fluent and postured graciously toward one another.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. - Ephesians 4:1–3(ESV)
