Christians have been urged to be united for advancement of the kingdom of God.
Senior Pastor of Help from Above Healing and Deliverance Ministry Worldwide, Godwin Ube made the call at a conference put together by the Ministry, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN in Kaduna state.
Pastor Ube noted that unity Fastracks development as nothing can be achieved in an atmosphere of rancour.
” We can accomplish much more when we work together rather than when we are divided” Ube added.
Ube who took his reading from Genesis chapter 11 verses 1-9 on what he tagged ” The power of unity stressed that unity is something that can be felt when present or absent either in the church, family or in the society.
He explained that the bible makes it clear that no church can be effective without unity among its members.
The Senior Pastor further explained that unity does not mean that everyone has to see everything alike but a situation where Christians continue to love, respect, treat and speak to each other with kindness and consideration.
” What is required for growth in life is unity as it attracts God’s favour and anointing, also the heavens open and God releases his blessings on his people” Ube stressed.
Ube explained that whenever the unity of the church is disrupted it should be addressed urgently as the scripture says “when the edge is broken the serpent will bite”.
Pastor Ube who attributed hindrances to lack of unity to include unforgiveness, bitterness, envy, selfishness therefore appealed to ministers to be diligent in the discharge of their duties to convince the world that Christians are in unity.
The conference had in attendance about one hundred Pastors.
