Unity through DNA

Pastor Dwain Uncategorized

DNA finds it’s greatest power in unity. Out of unity we can produce more healthy cells.

The DNA of a church is the common threads of doctrine, philosophy, values and methods that are central to that body. These nuclear essentials are worth fighting, worth fighting to protect and are the true key to our unity. What do I mean that our DNA should be the key to our unity as a body?

Think of it like a family…fellowship is not the key to unity, serving is not the key to unity, liking each other all the time is not the key to unity. Unity in a family goes far beyond compatibility. Certainly my kids are not always compatible.

DNA is the key to the unity of a family. The family members share and cherish the same DNA. Therefore the stick together, forgive each other and protect each other and stay unified. Therefore they fellowship and spend time together. Why? DNA.

Church members don’t have to get along perfectly all the time. Fact is they won’t! But when we value the DNA we share as a body, we’ll rebuild breaches and stay unified. We’ll recognize it’s the unity of our DNA that Satan is after and he will use various means to separate us. The worst part about separation is not the separation, but the inability to produce after our kind when we are divided.

DNA finds it’s greatest power in unity. Out of unity we can produce more healthy cells.
