 Revival: Oneness of Mind, By A.W.Tozer

*"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together
in unity! "
*-Psalm 133:1

God always works where His people meet His conditions, but only when
and as they do. Any spiritual visitation will be limited or
extensive, depending how well and how widely conditions are met.

The first condition is oneness of mind among the persons who are
seeking the visitation....

Historically, revivals have been mainly the achieving of a oneness of
mind among a number of Christian believers. In the second chapter of
Acts it is recorded that they were "all with one accord in one place"
when the Spirit came upon them. He did not come to bring them into
oneness of accord; He came because they were already so. The Spirit
never comes to give unity (though His presence certainly aids and
perfects such unity as may exist). He comes to that company who have,
through repentance and faith, brought their hearts into one
accord....

Every church should strive for unity among its members, not languidly,
but earnestly and optimistically. Every pastor should show his people
the possibilities for power that lie in this fusion of many souls into
one. Paths to Power, 59,61,64.

"Lord, give us that unity in our church today. I've seen first-hand
the devastation of disunity. Give us a oneness of mind that we might
experience Your full blessing in our midst. Amen."
