The Power Company

It is not enough that one or two dancers on a team is powerful. If we dance with a group, we must strive for everyone to be effective and move by the Spirit. It is good and pleasant for us to dwell together in unity! Being on one accord helps to combat pride and competition within ministry groups.

Granted, we are all at different places in our personal relationships with the Lord. When we minister as a group, we stand as one before Him. If just one of us is out of line, then the whole group is compromised. There is beauty in the holiness of worship. We are more effective as dancers when we rely on the Holy Spirit, and not our own abilities.

We only receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon us. Too many are operating in their own giftings. When the flesh is leading, we will struggle with disunity, strife, rebellion, ambitiousness, and mutiny. Our prayers for our movement ministries should include the unity of the brethren and that we walk as one. We cannot accomplish ths without the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 4:2-4 (NKJV)
With all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling

Zephaniah 3:9 (NKJV)
For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one accord.

Philippians 2:2 (NKJV)
Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

1 Corinthians 12:13 (NKJV)
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.
