Manifestation of God's presence - UnityJune 20th, 2021
This week we will look at unity as a key to bring down the presence of God into the church. The disciples were all with one accord in one place and God manifested Himself in their midst by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This outpouring led to church growth.
We could see that they were “all” with “one accord” in “one place”. This is a classic example of unity. Please read Acts 2: 44-47 to see how the early church grew on the back of their unity as the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. If we want God to visit us and abide with us, we need to foster unity. It requires effort and prayer. Jesus knew the importance of unity that He prayed to the father that they are one as He is with the father. John 17:21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. Psalm 133: 1-3 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2. 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.
3. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing – Life forevermore. Let us guide our unity with vigor. Let us pray for unity in our midst.
