                                                                                                 A Pleasant Thing

Psalm 133:1 says, “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.” I have always loved this verse. It speaks of the joy of unity, the idea of working together. Throughout this last year, I have really seen this verse come to life in many ways.

I think of all the churches offering Vacation Bible Schools this summer to help children come to know Christ and to grow in that relationship. Not only were efforts made to reach children through individual churches, but the churches have had joint efforts through a Back-to School bash, training seminars, and weekly devotions in the schools. All the hard work and long hours are worth it when we see how God touched these young lives.

I also think of the unified effort to reach youth through church camps and See You at the Pole events. The opportunities to introduce youth and children to Christ at camp are endless. Through music, preaching, activities and cabin devotions, the campers see the love of Christ for them. I am always moved by the pictures of youth around the pole in the early hours, praying for their community, state and nation. Another generation is being raised up to know and love God.

The younger people aren’t the only ones dwelling together in unity. The ladies of this association are also coming together to worship and to serve. A group of ladies meet on Tuesdays to dig into God’s Word and tackle life’s issues together. We also have ladies’ mini retreats every other month where speakers challenge attenders to grow and go deeper in their faith.

We can’t leave out the men. They enjoy monthly Brotherhood meetings at different churches around the association. Brotherhood is a lay-led ministry, which gives the men of the church opportunities for service.

All these ministries point to the same Biblical truth: It is good to live and work in unity. This can only happen if our unifying factor is Jesus Christ. The joy and peace of serving together is through exalting the name of our Savior. May we never grow weary of spreading His fame!
