ONE ACCORD


Acts 1:14 (NKJV) These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

Acts 2:1 (NKJV) When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

Acts 2:46 (NKJV) So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart.

This term “one accord” is found over and over in the book of Acts, and it goes to show us why they had such power in their lives and ministries. The term one accord means: to be of one heart, one mind, one aim, and to have the same purpose in what we are doing.  Now this does not mean that when they were praying together, every one of them said the exact same thing.  No, it means they had the same vision and drive, and that was to seek God to find out what He wanted them to do.  Because of that, the early church had amazing miracles happening in their midst.

We need to do the same.  At our prayer meetings and at our church services, when we get a heart for God and are willing to set aside our agenda and do His will, LOOK OUT!  We are going to see amazing things!

God is looking to move in our land and reveal Himself as the One true God, but as long as we, His people, are fighting and complaining, He will hold back His arm of power.  However, we can change and make a difference in our generation.  We can walk in the commandment of love, and go the extra mile.  I want to leave this earth with no regrets, and the way I believe I can do this is by living in His Word.

As we put ourselves to the side and think of the needs of others, we will be like the early church that stayed in prayer until they were filled with the Holy Spirit, so that they could go forth and do mighty things in His Name.  Today, let us do it!  Let us walk in love and aim to be people of the Word.


CONFESSION:  I choose today to be a person that wants to unite people, not divide people.  I want to live my life with no regrets.  I want to do what the Father has asked me to do.
