"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
Have you ever been annoyed by the teamwork of ants?
One colony can move up to 50 tons of dirt in one year which is equivalent to the weight of 10 elephants!
We should learn something from the tiniest of God’s creations. As we come together in unity mountains can be moved.
Psalms 133:1 says
“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”
Does this mean we all like the same style of music? No.
Does this mean we all like the same carpet color for the sanctuary? No. D
oes this mean we all pray the same way, get out of church at the same time or even read the exact same translation? No.
Just think of the diversity of the disciples and first believers. Remember when Paul and Barnabas parted ways? They were a dynamic team for the Kingdom and disagreed on whether or not to include someone on a mission.
We are human and with our various souls we can come to places of contention or even just grow weary. We must remember what our mission is and what we are placed on this earth for. Paul and Barnabas went separate ways, but in that the Lord was able to double the outreach!
What the enemy means for our harm the Lord can use for good. Our unity should always be in Jesus. We don’t always have to agree, but as fellow Christians we should always be in unity about the Kingdom and our love for our Father.
Not all the ants go to the same pile of food or work on the same tunnel…it takes a colony to make that mound in your back yard.
If you love Jesus as your Savior, our Father as your Abba Father and the Holy Spirit as your guide and counselor then I’d like to share the load with you because we are building the same Kingdom!
