Unity in Spirit? At a Christian Concert? I think… YES!




Sitting in a big auditorium…

Waiting for my ALL TIME favorite group to take the stage…

I take a look around and I see thousands of people.  

Looking around, I think to myself “These are my brothers and sisters in Christ.”  

Looking to my right and I my sweet young friend…

She smiles big…  The Lord’s love… beaming from her eyes.  

I can’t help but hug the sweet spirit within her.

To my left at a woman I never met…

She returns the same sweet smile…

Never met, yet an instant bond unites our souls.

I love this woman…  I’ve never met.  

Standing in line waiting for the performers to sign my Bible.

A kind couple stands behind us.

Strangers but not really strangers.

Returning the same smile.

But so much more…  Deep and beautiful conversation.

Everywhere I look…  

Beloved brothers…  

Beloved sisters…

Strangers sharing verses on their iPhones.

Beautiful encouraging verses… 

Sent straight from above…  Uniting souls…  United by the Holy Spirit.  

Could this be the unification of the spirit?

Could this be the cause of the overwhelming joy I felt at the concert? 

Could this be a taste of Heaven…

A taste of the angels singing in perfect harmony to the Almighty Holy Creator

I think…  YES!

Philippians 2:2 “Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.”

1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”

1 Corinthians 1:10 “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”

Colossians 3:14 “And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
