“The Unity of the Faith”

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: Eph. 4:13

When the Lord prayed for His disciples in the Upper Room “that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us…” (John 17:21), they had little understanding of the meaning of His heartening request. Not long afterwards upon the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, they would soon experience and begin to understand the reality of the truth behind these words.  It was then that the Church was formed—“a new man” according to Eph. 2:15, the Body of Christ on earth connected to its Head in heaven, the Man in the glory. The event transformed a loosely-knit group of cowering disciples into a unified, singular group that would soon turn the world upside down, Acts 17:6. It was in fact, an answer to His request on the night before His crucifixion.
