Introduction:

1.     Unity (Is one)

(a)         Deut.6:4-16 – “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!   "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.   "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.   "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.   "You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.   "You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.   "So it shall be, when the LORD your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build,   "houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant--when you have eaten and are full--   "then beware, lest you forget the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.   "You shall fear the LORD your God and serve Him, and shall take oaths in His name.   "You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are all around you   `(for the LORD your God is a jealous God among you), lest the anger of the LORD your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the face of the earth.   "You shall not tempt the LORD your God as you tempted Him in Massah.

(b)        Isa.45:5 – I am the LORD, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me.

(c)         Eph.4:4-6 – There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism;   one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

2.     Compassionate

(a)         Exodus 33:12-19 – Then Moses said to the LORD, "See, You say to me, `Bring up this people.' But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, `I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.'   "Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people."   And He said, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."   Then he said to Him, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.   "For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth."   So the LORD said to Moses, "I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name."   And he said, "Please, show me Your glory."   Then He said, "I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."
