Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Psalm 133:1 ASV
Unity is something we all strive for in the body of Christ.
Often we allow hurt, disagreements or even a difference in denomination stand in the way of this powerful act. Worship Victoria exists because we believe it’s time to look past the things that could easily separate us, and instead choose to lift up the name of Jesus with one heart.
I believe in our region we are stepping into an unprecedented season, one where many Pastors and leaders have laid down their agendas and have gathered together faithfully to seek God’s heart and will for our region. We are also stepping into a place of unity where the true heart of worship can, and is, being released.
Worship at its very core is for God, about God and to God.
I believe we are seeing one of the dreams of the Father’s heart being manifested here on earth as we join together in one voice and one heart.
Sound is a powerful thing.
Researchers of the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden studied the heart rates of high school choir members as they joined their voices. What became very clear was that it took almost no time at all for the singers’ heart rates to become synchronized. The readout from the pulse monitors starts as a jumble of jagged lines, but quickly becomes a series of uniform peaks. Perhaps this is what Jesus meant in John 17:21, “that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.”
Something happens in the natural realm as we come together in unity, lifting our praises to God.
Something definitely happens in the spirit realm also. In Deuteronomy 32:30, it says that one of us can put a thousand to flight, two can put ten thousand to flight.
How many of us will gather together at the upcoming Spring Worship Event?
Together we are strong, and together we fulfill the heart of unity.
“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” – Matthew 18:20
Come Lord Jesus, Come!
