Worshipping the Lord in Unity of the Spirit.
A few short years ago I had the unique privilege of being part of a Kingdom Christian Conference in Vanuatu (one of the Islands of the South Pacific). I had the special opportunity of actually staying with the women and children in one of the huts. Forever, I will remember the early morning worship which rose from all the huts and little children with faces alight with the morning sunshine worshipped their Saviour Lord by dancing around the complex.
I was reminded again yesterday when discussion was on the news about New Caledonia (one of the South Pacific Islands). French has always been the main language of this island.(after colonisation).
Together as one when these (first nation Island people) sang it was a unique blend of different cultures and language. (To me then the Gift of Tongues for born-again in Christ believers) made absolute sense. The languages were scrambled at Babel in the Old. Testament.
Jesus Christ through His Spirit came to reconcile the whole world. (Language also will be joined in Him. His unique language spoken to Him and for Him). (When all around you folk are singing, in island languages, English, French, Portuguese singing in God’s language made absolute sense. Worship was AWESOME and WONDERFUL.
One small girl had a fan (similar to the one above). I heard her say ‘for Jesus’. That child is a fan of Jesus Christ. She knows him at six as Saviour Lord. Her fan is used from her heart, as a surrender worship offering, of all things, unto Him.
A thought to ponder. Blessings and Grace!
