I went to Church Sunday and the preacher told a story about a young man who had to go through a beat down in order to be accepted in the gang he joined.  Well, sometime later the Preacher got the young man to turn away from the gang and to turn to the Church, well he did this and joined the Church.  Sometime later, the young man stop coming to Church and know one knew why, and could not contact him.  The Preacher finally caught up with him and asked him why he stop coming to Church.  The young man said, that when he joined the church, he thought he would experience the same family love from Christians that he did with his gang, but he didn’t.  So, he went back to where he felt part of a family.

A good friend reminded me of this Scripture. 

Psalm 133:1-3 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is life precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes.  It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion.  For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.   

David stated that unity is pleasant and precious.  Unfortunately, unity does not abound in the Church, as it should.  People disagree and cause division over unimportant issues.  Some delight in causing tension by discrediting others.  Unity is important because

(1) it makes the church a positive example to the world and helps draw others to us;

(2) it helps us cooperate as a body of believers as God meant us to, giving us a foretaste of heaven;

(3) it renews and revitalizes ministry because there is less tension to sap our energy.
