Redeemed by God, we must love His church.

Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
Depart from evil, and do good;
Seek peace, and pursue it.

Psalm 34:13-14

  • We are called to unity.

The rich and the poor meet together;
the LORD is the maker of them all.
Proverbs 22:2
And they sang a new song: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because You were slain, and with Your blood You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to
be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.
Revelation 5:9-10
Only Jesus is His whole body. Only He is the Messiah. The rest of us don’t have to be Him; we just have to be in Him, united to one another as His body.
You’re Only Human by Dr. Kelly Kapic
  • We are called to love one another.

. . . the Lord’s dinner is intended to convey to every participant that he or she is somebody precious to God. The Corinthians’ meal communicated to some that they were worthless nobodies.
1 Corinthians, David E. Garland
As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 
John 15:9-12
