Unity isn’t passive, it’s participative

As you know, we’ve been praying this month for a breakthrough in three areas:

  • We long for more of God’s miraculous power to break out! The last time I looked, we definitely need more breakthroughs.
    Can you make time to pray for this every day? What miracles are you longing for? We want to stand with you in that.
  • We long to see more people bring their unique contributions to the Zeo family so we carry God’s mission together! So far 8 people (out of over 300 people who receive this email) have offered to help (2 of whom are already serving).
    If you’ve not offered to try out in a Zeo team then could you do that now by clicking HERE? Remember, joining a team is a great way of making friends, making a difference, enabling God’s work, and growing as a disciple.
  • We long to see an explosion of pounds given every month so we can do more for our community locally and further afield.
    Could you start, or review, your giving to God through Zeo? Trust God with your finances by committing to live a generous lifestyle. Start small, keep it up, and see what God will do.

In Exodus 36, we read about something incredible that happened with the people of God as they worked together to build God’s house. They gave their time, skills, passion, and finance so generously that God, through Moses, told them to STOP GIVING.

“So Moses gave the command, and this message was sent throughout the camp: “Men and women, don’t prepare any more gifts for the sanctuary. We have enough!” So the people stopped bringing their sacred offerings. Their contributions were more than enough to complete the whole project.”

Wow! Can you imagine that? What a great problem to have?

We see a similar mindset with the early church in Acts 4:32-35.

“All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had. The apostles testified powerfully to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God’s great blessing was upon them all. There were no needy people among them, because those who owned land or houses would sell them and bring the money to the apostles to give to those in need.”

Again, wow! And notice the bit in bold. Their unity in loving, giving, and serving brought GREAT BLESSED FROM GOD upon them ALL. This is the promise of Psalm 133 (where there is unity God commands a blessing). Unity is not passive it’s participative.

When we play our part, everyone benefits – when we don’t, everyone misses out.
