The Blessings of Unity


In Psalm 133, David reflected on what it was like for God’s people to live together in unity.

1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
         For brethren to dwell together in unity!         
 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head,
         Running down on the beard,
         The beard of Aaron,
         Running down on the edge of his garments.
 3 It is like the dew of Hermon,
         Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
         For there the LORD commanded the blessing—
         Life forevermore.

These are some of the principles we can draw out of this passage:

  • It is good for God’s people to live together in unity.
  • It is pleasant for God’s people to live together in unity.
  • It is like the precious anointing oil that was used to anoint Aaron, the first high priest; unity is precious.
  • It flows down from our high priest, Jesus.
  • Its presence on our body is visible. It is tangible.
  • It flows from one part of the body to another.
  • It is fragrant like anointing oil.
  • It is refreshing like the dew which fell on Mt. Hermon.
  • The place where unity dwells is the place where God commands his blessing.
  • The blessing of God is full of life.

As you can see, unity is highly valued by God and is highly desirable. It begins in our heart and affects everything around us. It draws others to it because it is irresistibly beautiful. Are you living in the place of unity?
