You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple. He was  rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor. And you are living  stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy  priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please  God. - 1 Peter 2:4-5, NLT

When you look at the landscape of our country today, it seems overrun by divisive forces  and influences. Communities don’t seem to share a common goal and people are  bickering among themselves over small and petty details. Have you noticed this? This divisiveness is dangerous and has no place in the Church. We can’t let minor  disagreements sway us from coming together in unity. As Christians, we’re called to be  free and to resist the influences that cause division. The Bible identifies believers as  “living stones that God is building into His holy temple.” Unity is the one of the important  hallmarks of who we are. 

Throughout this five-part sermon series, Pastor Jeff will be sharing the commitments  required for us to live according to God’s ideal - in the beauty of unity.
