Unity of heart
A few months ago a friend posted on Facebook a notice that the church he was running was going to finish. He said that there was no longer a unity of heart that attracted the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The last phrase resonated with me and I have been thinking about it ever since. It is something I long for among Gods people. I hate separateness, I hate disunity, I hate hiddeness and agendas. Something rises up in my heart when I see things like that.
There is a unity of heart that is coming to the people of God , it is forged in brokenness and humility and in honouring one another above ourselves. Paul says this in Romans:
“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.”
Romans 12:10 ESV
Wherever we are on the journey, let us outdo one another in showing honour, this lays a foundation for there to be a unity of heart that attracts the Holy Spirit. Lord I pray you will give your people grace to honour one another above ourselves so that you would come and pour out your presence among us.
