43 Important Bible Verses about Unity in the Body of Christ

- in Life

The power of unity is seen with the people who built the Tower of Babel and many other Bible verses. One of the examples that inspires me was the unity shown by the Israelites in the Bible verses Nehemiah 1-7.

They had one common goal of rebuilding the temple wall in the face of opposition. Their display of unity enabled them to rebuild the walls in record time. That accomplishment was impressive and shows that nothing can defeat a united team.

Here are 43 Bible verses that show the importance of unity:
