Let us sit together!

1 John 4:20-21 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

A very sad news story from Wales tells of a feud in a church looking for a new pastor. It reads: "Yesterday the two opposition groups both sent ministers to the pulpit. Both spoke simultaneously, each trying to shout above the other. Both called for hymns, and the congregation sang two—each side trying to drown out the other. Then the groups began shouting at each other. Bibles were raised in anger. The Sunday morning service turned into a bedlam. Through it all, the two preachers continued trying to out shout each other with their sermons." Eventually a deacon called the police. Two officers came in shouting for the congregation to quiet down, and began to direct them to leave the premises immediately. The rivals filed out, still arguing.

Ugggh. I think we can all agree that this behavior is ridiculous. But how often do we rival with our brothers and sisters in the Lord? Yet the Lord's second most important commandment remains: love your neighbor as yourself!

If we can't sit at the same table down here, how will we ever be able to sit together at the glorious table with Him up there? Let's work out our issues and strive to love one another as He has loved us. There's soooo much work to be done!
