Acts 4:32-35 (GW): "The whole group of believers lived in harmony. No one called any of his possessions his own. Instead, they shared everything. With great power the apostles continued to testify that the Lord Jesus had come back to life. God’s abundant good will was with all of them. None of them needed anything. From time to time, people sold land or houses and brought the money to the apostles. Then the money was distributed to anyone who needed it."
When I listen to music I am always seeking that melody that creates joy in my soul. Though I am listening to the melodic line, I am not seeking to hear the soloist. Rather, the harmony of voices, of a choir that add lush coloration to any song. And it’s in that harmony, that communion, that unity that become who God created us to be: a perfect choir!
We came to Christ as diverse individuals, we join a church and become disciples, and together we are God’s people. As we continue our journey to unity, we need to seek a better understanding of what means to be "like" hearted, to be in communion despite our differences in attitude, thoughts and behaviors. This, beloved, requires that out minds and our spirit gather at the same place, a sacred place, a place of shared ideas and vision. Can we join in spirit and in truth?
Prayer: May you allow us to celebrate with scented oil the blessing of eternal life and togetherness. Amen.
