STRENGTH & POWER IN UNITY!

Have you ever noticed that when you have something in common with someone, it is easy to be with them - it is easy to talk to them? How much more in the Body of Christ. We are family - brothers and sisters in the Lord - with God’s Love “shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 5:5)

We read in Acts 4:23-24 when Peter and John were released by the religious leaders, they were told not to even mention the Name of Jesus in public, but they went straight to ‘their own company’ and reported back! Why did they do that? Was it just to let them know what was going on? No, they were family - they knew that they would be supported and strengthened by the unity that was amongst them. When they brought it before their Heavenly Father, verse 24 says that they were ‘of one accord’. Each time the Scriptures talk about them being ‘of one accord’, something supernatural happens! Verse 31> tells us that “the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and spake the Word of God with boldness.” Acts 2 tells the story of the first time the Holy Spirit fell on the Church -they were all “with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” (verses 1-2) Read on in that chapter to see what else happened! There is strength and power in unity.

What do we do when we experience ‘trials and tribulations’? Do we go to the world - do we listen to the thoughts of the enemy (which will always tell you that the worst thing you can do is to spend time with ‘your own company’), or do we follow the example of the Church in the book of Acts? Don’t be deceived - allow the love of God flowing through His Body to love you, strengthen you, and support you in prayer. Fellowship with those of like mind, and you will soon see things change.
