The Benefits of Harmony
Psa 133:1 “A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity (Heb. = Harmony)”!
HARMONY: It calls together the multi-racial peoples of earth into one Church Family and erases lines of carnal separation. It removes the barriers of culture and language. It tears down walls of social, political and educational classification and simply refers to its participants as "Christian." What an appropriate and awesome designation. It is wonderfully inspiring when we consider, that the complexity of human relationships are easily simplified when our multi-varied lives are affected by the Life of Jesus Christ. He peals away every layer of prideful self-promotion and imparts to us a holy individualism that is the equivalent of a new identity. Then He draws us all up close to His Purpose and suddenly every petty grievance, every foolish pursuit and selfish indulgence becomes secondary, and His Will priority. Our one great goal in life becomes the harmonious united pursuit of Jesus Christ, so that whatever pleases Him pleases us.
