Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Unity in Diversity”
Text: Numbers 7:11
“For the LORD said to Moses, “They shall offer their offering, one leader each day, for the dedication of the altar.”
The Miracle of “Unity in Diversity,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
I believe that the Beauty of Unity is found in its Diversity; and True Unity is found Only in Jesus Christ.
In our text, each and every leader of each tribe of Israel gave the same offering for the dedication of the altar; and God wrote down each offering for each tribe. This is more than a simple repetition of the offering of each tribe each day; it’s meant to show you and I The Miracle of Unity in Diversity.
Although the gifts were the same the leaders and the tribes were unique and diverse. How could the ‘diversity’ of all these tribes and people become ‘United?’ The Miracle of God’s Love!
God’s Love is the Magnet that brings Unity in Diversity
The Leaders gave their gift for the same cause - the Dedication of the Altar. The Altar was the ‘cause’ that United the Diversity of all these leaders and tribes. In other words, their common need for God’s Love and Mercy was met at the Altar of Sacrifice.
The Altar was the Symbol of the Cross, where our need for God’s Love and Mercy was met by His Perfect Sacrifice. He died and rose from the dead so you and I could live forever, in unity with Him!
Oh Hallelujah. We Give Because He Gave!
“For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.”(Heb.10:14).
Although the diversity of mankind is vast there’s still room at the cross for each one of us. We all have the same cause that unites us all - we all need the Love, Grace, and Mercy of God. (Rom.3:23; 6:23). So that’s why you and I as Warriors present the offering of our surrendered life to our Commander Jesus Christ every day.
Our Cause is the same; we’re sinners saved by Grace with a mission to rescue humanity from the bondage of sin.
Our Offering is the same; unconditional surrender of our Life. In other words, when we die to our self-interest we can live for God’s interest; this is the acceptable offering of a surrendered life.(Rom.12:1-2).
Although we are unique and diverse you and I can Walk in Unity because we have the same cause and we have given the same offering!
Our Commander’s Perfect Love working in our surrendered life makes this Miracle of Unity in Diversity happen! (Eph.4:1-6).
The Warrior walks in unity with their Commander Jesus Christ and this causes you and I to walk together in Unity. This is Unity in Diversity In Action! Ooooh Rah!
