Dear Members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The Peace of the Lord be always with you.
UNITY OF GOD'S PEOPLE.
In Acts 4:32-35 we read: "All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need."
The unity of the believers helped them to care for one another and to bring glory to God.
Jesus prayed for the unity of his believers saying: “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me." (John17:20-21).
May God help us and all believers in Christ to live and serve in unity for the glory God.
May God bless you with your family and friends and and protect you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
