In Agreement By Our Love

 

This song has always been a favourite of mine.  It calls to mind Jesus’ prayer for His people to be as one, even as He and the Father are one.  It strikes at call of the Hebrews writer for “Brotherly love to continue (Heb. 13:1),” and John’s admonition of I John : 7-8 for us to “love one another.”
Lyrics:
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
And we pray that all unity will one day be restored
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand
And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.
By our love
We can make it come together
By our love
Yes, the Spirit of our God
By our love
We can make each other better
By our love, by our love
We will work with each other, we will work side by side
We will work with each other, we will work side by side
And we’ll guard each man’s dignity and save each man’s pride
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love
By our love
We can make it come together
By our love
Yes, the Spirit of our God
By our love
We can make each other better
By our love, by our love
By our love
We can make it come together
By our love
Yes, the Spirit of our God
By our love
We can make each other better
By our love, by our love
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
And we pray that all unity will one day be restored
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love

As I was doing my daily study, which these days also includes readings from Dianne’s prayer and study journals I found reference to the power of such loving unity.  Matthew 18:19 tells us,  “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”  Agreement in love.  Love in agreement.  Let us do so, then as Pastor Vince reminded us on the weekend, look out for the tidal wave to come.
