The Greatest Need for our Day is a Return to First Principles
We need the power and authority of the first church.
They had it by being of one accord.
Acts 5:12 “And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch. “
Acts 2:46 “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,”
To be of one accord is to be in harmony with the Lord. For the accord is the Lord’s accord, or harmony.
You can hear it when someone is out of harmony in a choir. Someone singing either out of tune, or trying to sing a solo in the group.
It is the same way with God’s Purpose for us. We can surrender to His Will: that is like being in the choir.
O.K. You are ready to harmonize.
But we also need to submit to His Way of bringing His Will to pass, in this circumstance.
Have you ever found yourself knowing that you should say or do something; but are unsure how to do it?
This is to know “how to”. It is to rest assured by submission to what He wants, that He will show us: when we should, and also what exactly what we should do. He will give us the words: often He has brought verses to mind, and the testimony of what those have meant to me.
And He will give us the time.
This is finding your pitch and tune in the harmonizing of God’s Will.
Being “in tune” with the Holy Spirit within you, you are placed in the flow of God’s Music; and led into the joy and peace, within. And the power of the Lord’s accord in your life.
