Brothers

From Blog12

If a brother meets a brother
Walking in the Lord,
There's a joy that's like no other,
Both in one accord.

Whether short the time or longer,
Whether night or day,
Each one makes the other stronger
As they talk and pray.



    Behold, how good and pleasant it is
        when brothers dwell in unity!
    It is like the precious oil on the head,
        running down on the beard,
    on the beard of Aaron,
        running down on the collar of his robes!
    It is like the dew of Hermon,
        which falls on the mountains of Zion!
    For there the LORD has commanded the blessing,
        life forevermore.

                 (Psalm 133 ESV)

Those who are in Christ Jesus have a unity, a family relationship, which is an amazing gift from God. They may be new acquaintances, but they are one.

You have a beautiful way with words! The words flow so smoothly together and they have great truth in them.

Evert Heskes, thanks for the encouragement. Anything good in any of us is from the Lord.

That is so true even for Christian brothers we've never met before.
