United we stand, divided we fall. It was a sad day when Israel divided into two kingdoms. Later in Israel’s history, the Jews dispersed and did not come back together as a nation until 1948.
The Bible says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Corinthians 3:17). It is also true that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is unity (Ephesians 4:1-6). How do we maintain such unity?
We must guard our hearts, keep short accounts with God and others, practice confession and repentance, eagerly desire unity, walk in the Spirit, and remember the words of the psalmist, King David, who wrote. “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity” (Psalm 133:1).
