Something We All Can Agree On

Posted on November 3, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them.” Matthew 18:19-20

So maybe it’s the season of life I’m in and what I’m currently wrestling with and learning, but I saw this verse out of sarcasm for the first time. Two people agreeing? What’s that??? It’s no wonder God’s going to answer prayer when two of His children actually agree on something! Maybe that’s not exactly how Jesus meant it, but I think the truth is that our Father longs so much for us to come together and stand in unity. And notice what it says in the second part, about coming together IN HIS NAME. That’s what has to be important. Because the truth is, we aren’t going to agree on everything. But we can come together in agreement in our love for God and desire to see His will done. I think this is what Ephesians 2:14 is all about: “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.” HE HIMSELF IS OUR PEACE. Whatever issues we have, we can lay them down when we come together as the body of Christ. He is what brings us in agreement. He is what brings peace in the midst of differing opinions. And He destroys the DIVIDING WALL OF HOSTILITY. Just because we don’t agree with our brothers and sisters in Christ and even if we feel the need to have some space and boundaries, that doesn’t mean there has to be hostility. So prayers are going to be answered and miracles are going to happen when we come together in Jesus’ name because there is something extremely powerful about being united in Christ and exchanging our hostility for peace.

Believe me, I know this is easier said than done. But I pray by the grace of God that we’ll get there…. 🙂
