True Unity Requires Diversity

unity in diversity

“Unity is not uniformity. Most people’s understanding of unity is the fight for uniformity. True unity requires diversity. Diversity is required for Biblical unity. Unity does not tolerate diversity, it celebrates it. It’s what makes it so beautiful. Unity is not something we can create. Most human efforts for unity, as noble as they may be, are simply attempts for agreement and/or understanding. Not evil, not bad, just insufficient. (Ephesians 4:2,3 “with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”) Preserve unity. We can’t create it, it’s already in existence, we can only preserve it. How did it get there? It’s the unity of the Spirit. True Biblical unity is seen wherever the Holy Spirit has influence.” P. Bill Johnson
