Notes & Transcripts
  1. God gives 3 things: endurance, encouragement, and spirit of unity.

  1. First thing that happens is that scripture teaches. A Christian learns requirements, etc., but Scripture doesn’t stop there.

  1. The encouragement of Scripture gives hope as we endure (in requirements).

  1. Thus, endurance is given (also vs. 5), believe through Scripture.

  1. The same foundation is there for “spirit of unity.” “As you follow (the) Christ Jesus” of the Scripture

  1. The main cause of disunity is disregard for Scripture.
    1. Set aside commands for tradition (sneaky). Mark 7:9
    2. Ignorance – Matthew 22:29
    3. Outright disbelief – 2 Timothy 4:3

  1. Conclusion – A high practical regard for Scripture will result in unity, “so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
