Brethren, Dwell in Unity.

 

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.”

Psalm 133

“ I… beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Ephesians 4:1-3

Blest Are The Sons Of Peace

“Blest are the sons of peace,
Whose hearts and hopes are one,
Whose kind designs to serve and please
Through all their actions run.

“Blest is the favoured house
Where zeal and friendship meet;
Their songs of praise, their mingled vows
Make their communion sweet.

“Thus when on Aaron's head
They poured the rich perfume,
The oil through all his raiment spread,
And pleasure filled the room.

“Thus on the heavenly hills
The saints are blest above,
Where joy like morning dew distils,
And all the air is love.”

Isaac Watts

  1. Amen! Satan loves to stir up discord within the Lords followers to separate 1 or more of us. Our worldliness makes us want things our own way and in our own time ~ and not rely on God and his timing. Thanks for the reminder from the scriptures with the Lords reminders for our conduct, actions, and lives.

  3. My pastor just preached a great sermon concerning this. It is not a short sermon, but it is worth the time.
