There is something powerful about the people together from various backgrounds, ethnic groups and communities.

We could see a piece of Heaven on earth.
God's Call is to Unity not Uniformity
God Doesn't Want You To Be Like Everyone Else
When a united Gospel is lived out, it produces hearts that are sold out

God is calling us to community, not conformity
The challenge of living in community.

i. The drum-major instinct

ii. Shift thinking from “Me, not We” to “We, not “Me”

iii. African Proverb: “I am because we are, we are
because I am.”
God calls us all to humility, not arrogance
God does not show partiality to any person or race
i. Confront anti-God’s commUNITY language

ii. Confront anti-God’s commUNITY behavior

iii. Get God’s people involved, if needed, to confront anti-God’s commUNITY language and behavior
