Psalm 133 – How Good and Pleasant When God’s People Exhibit Unity!

When Sharon and I are in Montana we attend a small (but growing) church in Columbia Falls, Montana – Journey Church.  A few weeks ago I was so impressed with what I observed there!  I experienced a wonderful, pastoral message from God’s word about the importance of sharing you faith in Christ with others.  I participated in sincere and uplifting worship.  But what impressed me the most was the evident “family of God love” that congregation exhibited for each other.  For these people, their “church” was not just a Sunday thing – they were really involved in each other’s lives – they were taking the love of Jesus to their community in practical and wonderful ways.  They were demonstrating the truth Jesus taught… “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13.35)

I thought of that this morning as I read Psalm 133 during my time of “Coffee with the Lord”…

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!  It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aarons beard, down on the collar of his robe [i.e., a picture of the blessing of “anointing”]!  It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion [i.e., the blessing of the Lord that brings vitality and fruitfulness]!  For THERE the Lord bestows His blessing – even life forevermore!”

Just let me say, if that atmosphere and “spirit” is sustained in that church IT WILL GROW!  There is an infectious, contagious attractiveness about that kind of atmosphere, created within a congregation by the Holy Spirit, that draws people to Christ and the fellowship of believers… “THERE THE LORD BESTOWS HIS BLESSING – EVEN LIFE FOREVERMORE!”
