The blessedness of unity!

Scripture reading for July 6th:  Psalm 130-134

Key Scriptures:  Psalm 133:1-3  “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!  It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes.  It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion.  For there the Lord bestows His blessing, even life forevermore.”  

As the twelve tribes assembled, they became one family before the Lord.  This psalm decreed the blessing of unity upon the brothers as they gathered to worship in God’s presence.  The ultimate blessing that the Lord bestowed was eternal life in His presence!  Sounds like what Jesus Christ prayed in his final High Priestly prayer before the cross!

The blessing of unity: “For Your granted Him authority over all people that He might give eternal life to all those you have given Him.  Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” . . . “My prayer is not for them alone.  I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You.  May they also be in Us so that the world may know that You sent Me and have loved them even as you have loved Me.”  (John 17:2-3, 20-23)
