Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity – Psalm 133:1
Harmony is pleasant and is precious, unfortunately, harmony doesn’t abound in the church as it should be. People disagree and cause division over unimportant issues. Harmony is important because it makes the church a positive example to the world and helps draws others to us. Harmony helps us to cooperate as a body of believers, it renews and revitalize ministry.
To everything there is a season, a time for every person under heaven – Ecclesiastes 3:1
We live in a world that is constantly changing. The events of time and conditions of human life, are vastly different from one another, and we’re continually passing and repassing between them. There are seasons of happiness as well as seasons of dread, but wherever season we’re in, the Lord is there to walk us through it.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statues, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them – Ezekiel 36:26
God promised to restore Israel not only as a physical regathering to the land, but a spiritual regathering to God Himself. To accomplish this, He would give them a new heart for following Him and put His Spirit within them to transform them and empower them to do His will.
