Psalm 133:1

Tom Harding

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!–Psalm 133:1.

This is one of many evidences and descriptions of the Lordís family (John 13:34-35). Believers do dwell together in love, being made one with Christ (John 17:21-22), serving each other out of a motive of love (2Cor.5:14), bearing one anotherís burdens (Gal. 6:1-2), forgiving each other with a tender heart as the Lord has forgiven us (Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:13), praying for one another (1Thes. 5:25), encouraging each other in the gospel of Christ, unto love and good works (Heb. 10:24), endeavoring to keep the harmony of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Eph. 4:3). Behold, how good, excellent and how pleasant, satisfying is this blessed fellowship around the gospel of Christ. It is according to the will of God and the command of Christ. It is also pleasing to our God and satisfying to his people. Should we not at all cost avoid argument, debate and divisions to satisfy our own selfish way (Proverbs 6:16-19; 14:12)? And truly, whole heartily and pursue peace (Rom. 12: 18; Heb.13: 1), seeking the greater good and glory of God in the matter of harmony among believers, to the furtherance of the gospel of Christ and the good of the family of God (Col 3:23; 1Cor. 10:31).
