Good morning y’all. Today we in chapter 11. This chapter shows us that there is power in unity and introduces us to Abram and his family.
Be blessed 🙂
There is power in unity. When we are all united in one purpose, there is nothing that we can’t achieve.
The people living after the flood understood this and they decided to build a tower that reaches up to heaven. Although their motive for building the tower was completely wrong. They were building the tower in order to make a name for themselves.They were prideful. God wasn’t gonna have any of that! He saw that they were united even though it was unity born out of wrong motives and because of the unity, could actually achieve what they set out to do, He confused the people and scattered them all over the face of the earth. As a result they couldn’t continue with their plans.
The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. Genesis 11:6-8 NIV
The enemy knows this secret and that’s why he is always looking for ways to cause division amongst us. He knows that once we have a divided vision, it will be difficult, if not impossible for us to achieve our purpose or fulfill destiny as Christians.
Throughout the bible there are scriptures that encourages us to live in harmony with one another. One of such is found in Pauls letter to the Corinthians.
I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.1Corinthians1:10 NLT
For us to be able to live in unity, we need to learn to be patient with each other, be quick to forgive offences, walk in love, get rid of jealousy and pride, be humble.
Colossians 3: 13-14 and Phillipians 2:1-4 sheds some more light on this.
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:13-14 NIV
Christ encourages you, and his love comforts you. God’s Spirit unites you, and you are concerned for others. Now make me completely happy! Live in harmony by showing love for each other. Be united in what you think, as if you were only one person. Don’t be jealous or proud, but be humble and consider others more important than yourselves. Care about them as much as you care about yourselves. Philippians 2:1-4 CEVUS06
Today, with the help of the holy spirit, lets make a decision to live in harmony with those around us, bearing with each other and walking in love.
Dear Lord we thank you for your word today. Holy Spirit we ask you help us live in harmony with one another. Give us the grace to be patient, to quickly forgive offences, to be humble and walk in love. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen
