Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing-Life forevermore. Psalm 133 NKJV
The unity of God’s people brings His blessing!
Jesus said; “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another, By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
God created us to represent Him. We cannot do that if people don’t believe we are His disciples. The world will recognize us as Jesus’ disciples if they see our love for each other. God calls us to share His love with people who do not know Him. They will not believe we love them if we can’t love each other!
Where two or more of His disciples gather together the Spirit of God is present!
When the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all together in one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit. They were empowered to spread the gospel. They turned the world upside down with the revelation of Jesus Christ!
Jesus told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the promised Holy Spirit. They waited in faith. But they did not wait alone. They waited together in unity and agreement.
God’s anointing flows when we gather together in the unity of faith in Jesus Christ!
I pray for an anointing to flow through me to my wife and children like the oil flowing down Aaron’s beard. We should all have that desire!
We do not have to agree on everything to gather together in unity. We must lift-up the Name of Jesus together. We must love each other in practical ways. We must put our love for Jesus above love for self!
If we love each other the world will take notice. If we gather together in unity to serve Jesus He will empower us with His spirit. If we go forth in the power of God He will turn lives right side up with the revelation of Jesus Christ!
Gather together with God’s people in unity. The Lord will command a blessing and the oil of gladness will flow through the Body of Christ!
