With division taking place in America on every topic and morality that can be imagined: the Constitution, law enforcement, education, marriage, and family, we are seeing the same division taking place. In regards to the results of division, Jesus said this in Luke 11:17 “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.” If a man or woman is continually divided against their spouse, if children are divided against their parents, if parents are divided against the teachers of education, if a society is divided against the law enforcement, if a nation is divided against its original founding documents, why should one be surprised that it falls? When those desiring to be voted into power as leadership over a nation openly declare, “Deep seated….religious beliefs….Have to be changed”, we need to be alerted to the clarion call ringing out from the Bonhoeffer voice of our generation. There is no greater statement to describe the current days that we are living in and experiencing than these: “The Urgency is Now!”
By responding to the words of warning being blasted out, there is a response to be made. The Moravians were a people that understood that unity was a must. “In essentials Unity, in non-essentials Liberty, in all things Charity” As the church, there must be unity amidst a culture of increasing division. What we unify around is more vital than the reality that there is unity. We must come together, in humility, at the foot of the Cross of Christ.
