“How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity!
It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard, ….
It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.“
Isn’t it joyous that we are called as a church this autumn towards a season of reconnection? The COVID-19 pandemic caused nations/UN to proclaim a time for unity, when they realized the enemy that mattered is only the virus! Solidarity was called for, to stop this ‘enemy’ and its shattering consequences.
The picture of unity in Psalm 133 is a beautiful and powerful picture than the idea of unity of the world. This is a picture of anointing (power) bestowed on the High priests, a mark of freshness like the Dew on Mount Zion and the confirmation of God’s blessing and life in full. If we expect a shift in the momentum of winning souls and building Christ’s Body, we need to stand united against our only enemy Satan. God is calling us to rejoice and weep together, prompted by His love for us. This ain’t a superficial unity, but fireproof and deep to bestow God’s showers of blessing!
Take time to call up or invite to your home someone to reconnect this week. Seek a prophetic Word for the person as God’s sign of your unity in Christ.
Ask God’s mercy and sing over our Community Groups /church to be united in Christ’s love and vision.
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,…you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power…, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, …that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
The Holy Spirit is calling us:
To open ourselves to Christ’s glorious riches to build a united, powerful community of diverse backgrounds.
To be rooted in the 4-dimensional love of Christ and overflow with it, to love all sorts of people.
Build Your Kingdom
The Holy Spirit encourages us to make every effort to stay united, so His Kingdom be built through us.
3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit…
