Unity Series, Ch. 1: Purity, part 6

“For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” 1 Corinthians 12:13

“We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” 1 John 1:3

We started out both clean and in one body. It takes continual cleanness to stay completely one with each other.

“This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

If we are walking in the light as He is in the light we cannot help having fellowship with one another. Along with that, the blood of Jesus keeps on cleansing from all sin.

If we are not being continually cleansed, then we have disunity, a spastic body.

Unity requires confession of sin.
