Summary: We can’t get into this deep sharing of the heart with one another unless we allow unity to have its way with us. Unity is a choice and we know that according to Psalm 133 it causes God to command a blessing.
Have you ever wondered what the Lord thinks, when His children get together to speak about him?
Well it is very special to Him! In fact the word of God says the words become His special treasure
Have you ever seen this scripture? Malachi 3:16-17
Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels
The Lord thinks so much of our speaking with one another and sharing about His ways, that he has a special book where all our conversations are recorded. Your conversations with your brothers and sisters are considered special jewels. The Lord loves to hear His children speaking about Him! And His wonderful acts of love. That’s why the enemy is always trying to separate believers, because there is a key in unity. If he can keep us apart he won’t have to think about all the treasures our words are building.
Unity always brings fellowship, and in fellowship we have communication, and in communication we create special treasure, most precious to the Lord.
The fact is, we will never always agree on how some things should be done, but in order to create special treasure we must choose to put aside our different ways of doing things and focus on the one key element. To speak ~to share ~ to Shout ~ and to worship Him! For in so doing we create treasure.
We can’t get into this deep sharing of the heart with one another unless we allow unity to have its way with us. Unity is a choice and we know that according to Psalm 133 it causes God to command a blessing.
I found this wonderful message from one of the Desert Fathers written around 400AD There were two old men who had dwelt together for many years, who never quarreled. And that one said to the other let us pick a quarrel with one another, even as other men do. "Ï know not how to quarrel said the younger" to which the older replied, "set then this brick in the middle and say this is mine. To which I will say, no it is mine, from whence quarreling will begin." So they placed the brick in the midst, and one said "this is mine", to which the other said, "if this be so, then take it and go thy way in peace". So they were unable to quarrel .~ Sayings of the Desert fathers
We may not always agree with our brother but we can make a choice for unity. When we see unity we will see the Glory of God manifest. …….The bible says "The whole earth shall be covered with the knowledge of the glory of God" Man has the capacity for great things through unity, He also has the capacity for evil, remember the tower of Babel…
The body of Christ is made up of many ethnic groups ~ Many cultures ~ many different soci-economic groups But if we want to see the Glory of God we must walk in our diversity and accept our difference and be in unity!
On a Motorway near my home wildflowers have been sown on the verges and median strips. There is an amazing beauty in the wildflowers.
