Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Till we all come in the unity of the faith,
and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
|Brethren Dwelling Together In Unity
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
Christian unity is a confusing subject for many Christians. Some Christians think that there can be unity as long as one professes to be a Christian. But some Christians will only fellowship with those who are in their camps or denominations as far as their practice of Christian unity is concerned. Christians have many different ideas concerning Christian unity. The practice of Christian unity is often dependent on how a Christian has been taught by his church as to how much and how far to accommodate other Christians in the way they interpret the Holy Bible before they are accepted into their fellowship. Bible believing Christians practise separation especially from the world and from those Christians they deem to be worldly according to their own measurement of standards. The Holy Bible does teach separation. Notwithstanding, the Scriptures also reveal the desire of God’s people for brethren to dwell together in unity.
This book is a study on brethren dwelling together in unity. This is not a book about Christian standards going into legalistic details like the Pharisees of old to require compliance for Christians on extra Biblical observances. This book is a brief exposition of Psalm 133. It is the hope of this author that all true Bible believing Christians will learn from the Holy Bible to appreciate the desire of the psalmist for brethren to dwell together in unity and to treasure true Christian unity in the Christian faith.
