The Unity of God's Kingdom Exists in the New Heart of One Believer



The unity of God's kingdom exists in the new heart of one believer.

A heart regenerated by the Word and the Spirit is a new heart, and within it is the unity of God's kingdom.

This is always resisted by the world and those who would spurn the Word and the Spirit to seek a worldly unity.

There are a thousand worldly - man-fearing - justifications for doing this; and among those with such justifications there is even anger when regeneration or new heart is mentioned.

So be it. (Notice you're suddenly very unified when you are angry at one of God's own who tells you things you don't want to hear?)

Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

There is a constant yearning among the talkers and shallow-in-the-faith (and worse) for 'unity' among Christians in the world. This unity they desire can't exist except on the world's terms. The unity of God's kingdom exists in the new heart of one believer.
