                   How Love and Unity is Seen in Us

1. God’s love and unity is seen in us as we embrace the
                                                                                        Conclusion:

                                                                                        others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no partiality and is always

2. God’s love and unity is seen in us as we embrace the                                 My Commitment: “Lord, based upon what I heard You say to me this
                                                                                        morning I choose to obey You by. . .”

What did God say to me through His Word so that I may teach it to
others?

    1.   Share a time in your life when you experienced genuine unity
         (sports team, family gathering, work environment, etc.).
         Describe the emotional climate that unity created. What was
         the result of such unity?                                         3. What could the church learn from the Trinity about diversity
                                                                              within unity that might prevent conflicts?

                                                                              arrangement that you could apply to your personal
                                                                              relationships (family, friends, workplace, etc.)?

         e. Isaiah 11:6-7                                                      
