MORE CONNECTION
1. Unity brings oil
Psalm 133(NIV) 1 How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! 2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. 3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.
Bestows- Commands and Orders.
A unified house is a blessed house!

2. Jesus prayed we would be unified.
John 17 20-23(NV) 20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

We get the incredible opportunity to be the answer to what Jesus prayed. 

3. We are called to unity. 
Ephesians 4:4-6 (NIV) 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

3. Play together

4. Pursuing Jesus together. 
Colossians 3:16 (NIV) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God
Go through the word together-
Worship & Pray together

5. War together
Romans 12: 15 (NIV) Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. 

“Warring together is spent on the battlefield AND at the victory table.
I Corinthians 12:26(NIV) If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

6. Working together
We serve together
We implement our gifts together.
I Corinthians 12:4-11 (NIV)4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a (1)message of wisdom, to another a (2)message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another (3)faith by the same Spirit, to another (4)gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another (5)miraculous powers, to another (6)prophecy, to another (7)distinguishing between spirits, to another (8)speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the (9)interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
This oil wasn't for him….IT WAS FOR US!
