LESSON

Key Scriptures: Colossians 3:12-16.

The Big Idea:

Christ gave us unity. Ephesians 5:2 says to “live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.” Our job is to maintain unity with one another.


Main Points: The 5 Angles of Unity

  1. Mercy

    • I feel your pain.
  2. Kindness

    • You get my smile.
  3. Humility

    • Philippians 2:3-5
    • The opposite of humility is pride and a self-seeking attitude.
  4. Gentleness

    • I am not going to fight you.
  5. Patience

    • I’m not giving up over something little; I am here!


Discussion Questions:

Read Ephesians 4:2. Forgiveness is not always easy. Keeping our mouths shut can be so hard! Which of the five angles of unity do you feel is the hardest for you to show others?

Read Colossians 3:15. Are you helping set an atmosphere of peace in your home, at work, and with friends?


Challenge:

Instead of gathering to gossip, complain, or disagree, we should find ourselves living out Colossians 3:16. Make it your mission this week to have hearts of gratitude and to encourage one another. Watch what God can do when our hearts are united!
