ONE - The Power of Agreement -part 2-
(For part 1 see the January Celebrator)
1 How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!
2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down on the collar of his robe.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.
There are many ways for human being to dwell together. Everyday around the world, people choose to live together in strife. Others struggle to overcome the domination of anger in relationships. Many endure the core people in their lives far more than they enjoy them as a gift. Any casual observer of politics is aware of the oppositional nature that marks the dealings of so called liberals and conservatives. Sadly, some choose to live in perennial opposition to those who think or process the details of life differently, as though the governmental structures of inbred opposition should define Kingdom covenants in Christ.
We Choose Unity!
The Psalmist describes living together in unity as good and pleasant. Strife, contention and the relational politics of enduring enmity are neither good nor pleasant. Any choice other than unity guarantees a yoke that is not easy and a burden that is crushing. The Bible calls us to live united. Unity does not discount our differences. Instead, unity respects, honors and celebrates how our distinctions create a beautiful harmony that blessed the world around us. Unity attracts people to the God we serve and His family, the Church. Unity strengthens our pursuit of God's will, as others partner with us to fulfill destiny. Unity breaks barriers that stand between us and deliverance. Our Celebration family prayer in 2012 is that we will trust the Lord to help us live out the unity He won for us at Calvary.
