Make One Sound

In 1958 while on tour, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra played what their conductor, Fritz Reiner, called “a perfect concert.” Waiting backstage afterward with tears in his eyes, he told the musicians, “Thank you, thank you! All my life I waited for this moment.”

This was a rare concert when an unusually high level of excellence was achieved during a performance when there was complete focus and singleness of purpose. There was a harmonious blending that resonated a level of perfection. The musicians seemed to perform as a unit, transported to a higher plane of purity.

An even more glorious moment took place during the ceremony dedicating the temple in Jerusalem as the musicians and singers became like one, making one united sound. This unity was expressed as they sang and played their instruments. And God’s presence filled the place.

Powerful things happen when God’s people join together. The Bible tells us, “How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity” (Psalm 133:1). This is more than a nice experience. Where there is unity, the Lord commanded His blessing.

Ask God to show you if there are any rivalries in Your heart. Put aside anything that keeps You from seeking Him with Your whole being. And seek opportunities to join with other believers to worship and seek God. He longs to pour His Spirit upon You and to fill Your life with His presence.
