Exodus 36

  The divinely inspired artisan took all the different pieces and parts of the offering and he had them put together in the pattern given by the Lord.  ... And he made all the diverse components to be fashioned in such a way ... that it might be one tabernacle,  that it might be one.

Reflecting on the idea of one from some lead me to:

Genesis 1:5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
Genesis 2:24  For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

Acts 1:14 These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer ...

Acts 2:46-47  Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Romans 12:4-5  For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 
1 Corinthians 12:12-14, 27  For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.  For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many. ... Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it.

Galatians 5:14  For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “ YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”

Philippians 1:27  Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel ...

Philippians 2:2  make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. 

Colossians 3:15  Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 

Hebrews 10:12   ... but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD ... 

 Lord God, with all the different things that this life offers, help me to be the woman whose heart is stirred by You to join in Your plan for the one purpose You have for Your Name and for this world.  I praise You that You have included me in this great glory.  Lord, help me to be one who is easily braided into Your perfect cord, that thrives in the diversity of Your unity and functions fully and freely - as it is for liberty that You have made me free.
