Union Creating Unity
The kind of unity needed to strive together for the gospel is only possible when we forget ourselves and count others more significant. As Alec Motyer says, while that is a natural overflow of the gospel, it doesn’t come naturally. How can we just forget ourselves? Union with Christ is the answer, and we’ll see why in this passage.
