The Psalmist wrote a powerful word to us in Psalm 133:1 when he said, "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!"
Beloved, I have always wanted to pastor a large church, and I have ministered in larger churches than I'm serving currently, but I have come to see only recently that a unified church is far better than a large church that is at odds with one another continually. Listen, I've come to understand that having peace among the body of Christ is more precious than packed pews where strife is present.
My prayer from this day forward will be, "Oh God, help me to remain content serving You whether You give me a few or many to minister Your Word to." Lord, thank You for being patient with me as I learn more about serving and worshiping You in Spirit and truth.
May the Lord bless richly all of His children who seek to live out their lives among their brethren in peace.
Love, Bro. Tim
