Annoiting for unity

1. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3  As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
 

 What is the unity referred to in Psalm 133? HTow do we achieve unity when every man has his opinion about what the Word means? Simple. Exit the realm of subjective opinion, casting aside what WE think and replace our thoughts with "The Mind of Christ". God opposes the proud, but grants grace to the humble. Unity is experienced among believers when each member is yielded to the Lord, and does not promote himself. We do not CREATE UNITY in the body of Christ, the unity is already there. To enter in, we need only to humble ourselves and yield.
