“As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore” Psalm 133:3 (KJV)
Happy New Year. It is my prayer that this year will deliver to you in every area in Jesus’ name. The theme for this year is “Commanded Blessing”. When the Lord gave the theme, it was clear that He has something definite in mind for the church. For too long the Church has walked independent of each other, we have allowed the lines of denomination divide us. We forget that there is no denomination in Heaven. The only qualification for Heaven is accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. If you have done this, then we are members of one body – the body of Christ.
If you look at the global events, you will agree that the time to stand as one is now. The world is challenging us and we are being buffeted on every side. Why do the work of the devil by attacking your brother or sister? We do not need to agree on every doctrinal issue, but as long as you agree on the foundation of our faith, every other thing is secondary.
Our scripture today is a very popular one and it simply tells us where the commanded blessing is. Don’t stop in verse 3, take it from the beginning and you will discover that the blessing rests in the place of unity.
I challenge you this year to do everything for the unity of the Body of Christ. Stay with your group, home fellowship, ministering arm and dispel every act of disunity and watch the blessing of God flow in abundance.
This year, you will enjoy the commanded blessing in Jesus’ name.
