I attended several meetings last week where Christians came together for different reasons (Prayer – Meetings – Making Christian Values Known). I was really encouraged at a couple of the meetings to see Pastors come together to Pray or to see Christians coming together to help spread the Values that we have. Then at a couple of the other meetings it discouraged me to see the lack of participation because of difference between denominations or people do not want to take the time out to meet with others in unity.
Unity is extremely important for The Church and we must come together to fight the Battle that is before us. Pastor Jay is heading up a program for Cheyenne to be praying for the City every day and one of the prayer items for February is Unity:
(Unity – Pray for unity for the Church in Cheyenne based on the establishment of the government of Heaven in our City and the submission of the Church to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Head.)
John 17:20 > 24 – “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
As the scripture points out it is extremely important that people see the believers as one and united. If we are not united then what do people see? Pastor Jay does not have all the days filled yet and is looking for Churches/Organizations to pick a day of the month to Pray (This is just 12 days a year that you pray for the city). If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you in touch with Pastor Jay.
When we started GMM (God’s Mighty Men) we knew that a Unity Vision had to be part of what we were going to do. One of the biggest challenges was to bring men together from different denominations to worship together. Here is the GMM Vision Statement:
With the Encouragement and the power of that the Holy Spirit gives, God, Mighty Men will stand and band together to win souls for Christ, while at the same time fortifying their town and church’s from Satan’s attack.
We have been coming together for several years now and it is a powerful thing to see all the men from different churches at the Conference for one cause.
So my question to you is: Are you Uniting with other Christians and breaking down the walls of Division to fight the Battle that is before us?
