THE UPPER ROOM DEVOTIONAL 15 SEPTEMBER 2022, THURSDAY

Today’s Topic: The Importance of Unity
Samuel Yali Ituma (Ebonyi, Nigeria)

TODAY’S READING
Ephesians 4:1-13

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
There is one God and Father of all.

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. – Romans 12:5 (KJV)

Many years ago, my soccer team was down 3-0 at the end of the first half. As we gathered around the coach for halftime, we blamed one another for the errors that had led the rival team to score. Our coach ignored our complaints and handed a sweeping broom made from a bundle of twigs to our team captain and told him to break it. We all watched with keen interest as this guy whom we all respected tried and tried to break the broom but could not even bend it.

He ultimately handed it back intact. Looking around at each of us, our coach explained that this was the power of unity. He encouraged us to work together, and in the second half we played with renewed team spirit, scored five goals, and won the game.

I think the Holy Spirit wants to teach us a similar lesson. Ephesians 4:6 reminds us that there is “one God and Father of all.” God wants all believers to unite as one. We’re all children of God. Despite our differences, Christians can and should work together to spread the good news.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, help us to set aside our differences and work with Christians around the world, worshiping, serving, and glorifying you. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Unity in the church
