HE is Lord

IN UNITY

HE is Lord,

HE is Lord,

HE has risen from the dead,

And HE is Lord,

Every knee shall bow,

Every tongue confess,

That Jesus Christ is Lord.

What a wonderful, moving hymn. While singing this hymn I am often moved to tears imagining “that day” when Jesus returns and all nations of the earth will fall to their knee’s declaring His Lordship. Won’t that be awesome?

Each of us has the opportunity to make that confession for ourselves, now, today. If you have already done that, but feel a distance from when you first asked Jesus to come into your heart; perhaps a time of refreshing is what you need.

I know that is what I needed just this past week. The services that I usually participate in are very lively events regarding the music, the preaching and even the prayers are very vocal. However, I was invited to worship with a new acquaintance at his church. It was very peaceful, quiet, and not very long in service length. It was in fact, quite refreshing.

Just as I wouldn’t order the same thing on a menu at every restaurant I attended; similarly, I wouldn’t want this kind of quiet, brevity on a regular basis either. However, for where my heart was at that time; overcoming a busy schedule and knowing I needed some shut-eye at some point in the day; this was a Sabbath rest that “filled the bill” for me.

Psalm 133:1 says: “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!”… See how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters live together in unity

How wonderful to be united with brothers and sisters from divergent backgrounds. The one thing we all had in common was our recognition and declaration that: “HE is Lord.”

Isn’t that true for us all? Find your place and find His grace for your life today. Be Blessed
