United We Stand
Sir Godfrey Gregg
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133:1
What comes to mind when you think of the word, “Behold”? Personally, I think of something so rare that I must take a moment and enjoy it. To behold something is to value something.
So important is the concept of unity in the lives of God’s children that the Psalmist mentions the word “how” twice. All of us love pleasant things but some of those pleasant things are evil. In this text the author informs us that unity is both pleasant and good.
As a church, unity is so worthy of our prayer and pursuit. The reason is simple. A church committed to unity will be a source of great goodness and pleasure to all who encounter her. Unity will force the world to look our way and ultimately to God because unity is such a rare commodity in our world today.
What difference would a unified church make in the world today?
What do you believe is the greatest enemy to our church being unified?
