God has made us a family. But what does that mean? With all of our generational, political, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity there is a lot that could divide us. But, through the blood of Christ, God has broken down and destroyed the dividing walls of hostility that used to define our differences, and has united us together in Christ. We still bear a beautiful array of unique distinctives, but as the family of God we are united in a way that allows those distinctives to bless one another, not push one another away.

Application Questions

1. Looking at who you proactively live in community with, what divisions do you find lingering in your life even though Christ has broken them down? Generational?Political? Ethnic? Socio-Economic?

2. In what ways could your life in diverse community be lived more humbly or gently?

3. In what ways could your life in diverse community be lived more patiently or forbearingly?

4. In what ways could your life in diverse community be lived more eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit?
