Eager for Unity Without Masking our Opportunities

If our evangelistic fervor for Jesus reached the level of many (even in church) who were for/against wearing a mask, the work of the Kingdom would be so much farther along.

Christians have an opportunity to show where hope (not just their hope, but Hope) lies. Instead, it has brought out a name-calling, faith-questioning, division-causing meltdowns in our camp that will do more harm than good in reaching the ends of the earth with the gospel.

Make your case, please. But when I see my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ disparage one another rather than love one another over a piece of cloth, then is this season bring out to the surface that which lay dormant when times were better?

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:1‭-‬3 ESV

A key word is “eager.”

Church, in this season, we have our Kingdom work cut out for us. Let us pick our battles biblically. Make your case. Share facts. Share feels, even. But not at the expense of each other.
