There is nothing the devil fears more than Christians who are united. This means that his number one tactic is to bring disunity in the Church. If he can succeed, then the Church is crippled. In 2002 I started attending the Orchardville Church, at that time the Church was running 200 people and Pastor Mark Shell was preaching Unity and working together to reach our friends, family and neighbors. Unity is spelled U – N - I- TY (you and I ty) I watched and helped over the next 10 years this Church to grow from 200 people to close to 2,000 people and 2 branch Churches one in Centralia and one in Fairfield. Working together we started a tape ministry and started passing out tapes to everyone we came in contact with and inviting people to come join us in Orcharville to Worship Jesus on Sunday. We had great preaching and great worship music and the tape ministry was a way to take the Church to the people. With a whole congregation working together to see their family, friends and neighbors find Jesus, it wasn’t long before every Sunday someone new was showing up and people started getting saved and joining with us to reach their family, friends, and neighbors. and that continues to this day! Each Sunday at Orchardville Church we have someone new attending the Church service.
Jesus spoke about the power of agreement in Matthew 18:19: "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." Don't put any limitation on this scripture. Jesus says what He means. We can receive anything if we agree about it in prayer.
The Bible says that one can put a thousand to flight, but two could put ten thousand to flight. If we work together in unity we can reach our area for Christ. We can make a difference in someone’s life today.
