Focus Verse: How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! (1)
God loves to see His people live and work and celebrate and serve Him together in unity.

Focus Verse: My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power. (4)
