The Great Divide

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Think about the closest relationship that you have. Whether it’s your spouse, sibling, parent, or friend, what’s the biggest conflict that happened between you? The truth is that sometimes we don’t even see eye to eye with those we’re closest to. And the same principle happens in church. Because each of us are unique, we complete the beautiful body of Christ and help it grow in love and impact—furthering God’s kingdom here on earth. But if we let our differences breed conflict, then we’re letting the enemy win. Satan rejoices when God’s children turn on each other. First Corinthians sixteen encourages us to “stand firm in the faith; and be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.” Unity is realizing that despite our differences, we as Christians have one important thing in common: we put our trust in Jesus Christ and Him alone for salvation. So let’s work together in unity to spread that hope to our communities! For more resources, visit
