United with Christ – United with one another.
Some doubt that diverse people groups can be united in one church. They can’t unless they literally accept the relationship they each have with Christ who makes them one family. When they identify with the one that gave them life, family members can be UNITED even though they each have unique personalities and gifts. Jesus Christ identified with mankind to deliver us from the one who had the power of death. Can you sacrifice as He did to unite with your brothers and sisters in Christ? See Heb 2:11 – 15
2:11 For both He who sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brothers, 2:12 saying, “I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.” 2:13 And again, “I will put My trust in Him.” And again, “Behold Me and the children whom God has given Me.” 2:14 Since then the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise partook of the same; that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death (that is, the Devil), 2:15 and deliver those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
