God’s desire is for the church to reach and maintain unity in the faith. Unity, however, takes hard work and requires each person to put their carnal nature to death. In this session, Andrew reminds us that sometimes ‘the road to unity is paved with war’, through trouble and division, which God allows (and even brings about Himself), to reveal what is inside us and to force us to choose whether we will follow His way or our own. We should expect divisions to increase as the Lord’s return draws near. This is how Jesus purifies His church, cutting out what is not of Him and preserving His own.
Andrew is the apostolic leader of Four12. He also leads the multi-site Joshua Generation Church and is the founder and director of Freedom of Religion South Africa. He is based in Cape Town, South Africa, along with his wife, Emsie, and their daughter, Enya. Follow him on Facebook and Instagram for more.
