As Christians, we’re called to dedicate ourselves to looking out for others’ good and not merely our own. That kind of commitment results in genuine unity—God-pleasing and bold-witnessing unity—in the church.
Yet too often, factions and selfish actions cripple the church, damaging its effectiveness. After hearing of bickering and self-centered conduct in the early church, Paul urged believers to “do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).
In A Plea for Unity, John MacArthur outlines key reasons many churches never experience true spiritual unity, and the principles you can apply to avoid those pitfalls. Discover the characteristics of a truly unified church and how to cultivate them in your own life and congregation—and grow peace, joy, and a Spirit-charged effectiveness.
