The Beautiful Unity of God's People

Psalm 133. A Song of Ascents. Of David.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
     For brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious oil upon the head,
     Running down on the beard,
     The beard of Aaron,
     Running down on the edge of his garments.

It is like the dew of Hermon,
     Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
     For there the LORD commanded the blessing-
     Life forevermore.

This was the topic of today's sermon at church. I love the imagery of this psalm. The fragrant, sacred oil being poured out and flowing down over the priest. The dew poured out from the heavens and descending down the mountains. The unity of God's people is truly a precious gift from God, poured out freely through Christ.
