In this post we will look at a collection of Bible verses about Unity. It will help you learn what scripture says about unity and working together. Grab your Bible and let’s get started…
Where there is unity there is strength….
This is a common thought when it comes to unity and there is truth in it. On a natural level when we are united things happen. We see this in families, groups, businesses, military and more. We achieve goals and produce things unmanageable.
But it’s also true on a spiritual level. When God’s people are united powerful things happen both in the spirit and in the natural. When we are united the enemy has little to no room to move. It’s when we are in discord that we are shaken.
In this post, we will look at 21 scripture verses about unity. And I pray you to see how powerful unity is and how much the body of Christ needs it in this time.
