George Floydâ€™s death has exposed the racist disunity in our society. Did you know the Lord has commanded that blessings come upon you when you are at peace with your brothers and sisters in the Lord? This doesnâ€™t mean you say nothing, it means together we show love, when one hurts we all hurt. As believers, we are called to work together in unity in order to fulfill Godâ€™s purposes. We are called to serve one another in love and serve together in our communities. Making the weaker strong and crushing injustice.
Think. Is there someone that you donâ€™t quite get along with? Maybe itâ€™s discrimination, gender issues, jealousy or a character clash. Pray for yourself first that God would work on your heart. Then pray for that person. Go out of your way to be a blessing to them. Do your best to walk in peace and unity.
Today, as we serve one another in love, the Bible says the world will know that we are Christians. The world will recognise that we are true followers of Christ by our actions, not by our words. Make the decision to live in peace and unity with your brothers and sisters in the Lord, which includes honesty and truth. If the only thing you can agree on is that Jesus is Lord, build on that. Focus on the love you have for God and for seeing people come to know Him. As you focus on walking in peace and unity, you will walk into the place of blessing the Lord has commanded for you!
â€œHow good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unityâ€¦for there the Lord has commanded the blessing.â€(Psalm 133:1â€“3, KJV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, search my heart today and see if there is anything that is keeping me from walking in unity with my brothers and sisters. Father, our world needs Your love and unity that only comes through Your Spirit. God, I choose peace today. I choose unity today. Help me to be an example of love to those around me, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen
