Recently, I did a study of five of the major prophets in the Old Testament. I was challenged to study their origins and I discovered they were people like you and me. Ordinary people with an extraordinary call on their lives. The Lord taught them and I pray that we might be one with one another. In order to be one we must honor each other, submit to one another, prefer one another. That is what it takes to make a family unified and we are all part of the family with Our Father leading.
Please pray for unity.
Pray that as Martin Luther King said, we can also say, “I have a Dream….” What a motivator he was. He stepped up to lead and motivate God’s people and he became a national hero and a solid Christian. The only race in God’s terms is the Human Race. The enemy has sown tares among the wheat to cause division and it’s up to us, His people to bring love and unity as the Lord prayed before He left earth.
The brethren in the early church not only were a community of believers, they were a community of believers that assembled together.
We read in the book of Revelation letters that were written to the churches of Thessolinica, Laodecia, Sardis, Ephesus. If the Lord wrote a letter to the church of your city, who would get it? Does He see the church in your city as one?
Do your churches pray together? Do your Pastors pray with other Pastors of the city? Who would get the letter and what would it say? Are we very different from those cities referenced in Revelation? If so, what are we to do?
Jeremiah 18:9-1 says, “On the other hand, I might speak concerning a nation, or kingdom to build up or to plant it, but if it does evil in my sight by not obeying My voice, then I will think better of the good with which I had promised to bless it.”
What can we do in our cities of Kansas? Join together with Pastors and other churches, humble ourselves, cry out to God for mercy.
