Paul continues with his appeal for unity among the weak and the strong. Paul gives a clear imperative in light of the importance of unity and the nature of the kingdom of God. He wants us to remember not only that Christ is the Judge but that he is also the sanctifier of his people and he is at work in the church, building us up in faith and love. We need to work with him and not against him in this. The message is entitled Working with God for Unity. We will consider these five points:
- Review the background and issues.
- The wisdom and insight Paul shares.
- The imperatives he gives.
- The reason for this.
- The faith we need.
