II Chron. 20:4 So people from all the towns of Judah came to Jerusalem to seek the LORD.
Judah was being threatened and would soon be under attack. Jehosophat, when he heard about it, went into his prayer closet, fasted and prayed. He issued a decree all across the land that everyone in Judah should fast and pray as well. The people responded by going to Jerusalem to seek the Lord together.
I love it when people come together to seek the Lord. I long for the time in which we can set aside our quirks and differences and just seek the Lord together. What a day it will be when it won’t matter what church we belong to, what social status we may have, what our earthly successes may be, who we may know, or what we may do. I long for the day in which we don’t get hung up with that which separates us and just turn to the Lord and seek Him together. I long for the day in which we can just worship the Lord together from the heart without critical spirits because we may worship differently. Wouldn’t it be nice to just be able to focus all of our attention on the Lord and not ourselves? I wonder what kind of a difference it would make in our communities and country if we were to do this.

I love it when people come together and serve the Lord. We could get a whole lot more done for the Lord if we could just set aside our differences and work together for the Lord. Instead of competing with each other for people, we would just go out into the lost world and harvest souls for the Lord. Instead of being concerned about what church fellowship people may go to, we just rejoice that they go to church. We really hinder the work of the Lord to reach the lost when we fail to come together and do what we can to make a difference for Christ in the world.
We are all a part of the family of God. I believe it’s time we really acted like it. Sure we have our differences, but as long as Christ is not compromised as Savior and Lord, we should be able to unite for the glory of Christ instead of our own.
