"Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.Do not be conceited."  Romans 12:16
Here is a great example of harmony:
The Scripture says, "Live in harmony with one another". Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could live with a harmony that was as beautiful as that? Well, that is exactly what God calls us to do! And we certainly cannot do it without the AMAZING GRACE of God!

How can this happen?

Get In Tune

Harmony is a matter of getting in tune with God! He is the Music and He is the Maestro! Until you harmonize with Him you will ever be out of tune with life, and love and hope! The inspiring music you just enjoyed happened because all the musicians got in tune with each other and the musical score.
Get Your Tone
Harmony is a matter finding your tone. Each of those lovely Irish ladies sang a separate part. One was a soprano, one was a second soprano, one was an alto, and one sang the melody. In the orchestra, each instrument has a unique sound and different notes that when played correctly blended into beautiful music.
Similarly, in the church, each believer has unique gifts and talents that must be recognized, acknowledged and committed in concert with other believers in the church. When each plays his part, the church makes inspiring music for the glory of God!
Get His Timing
Every song has a time signature. For the music to work, the tune must be correct and in tone and then done together with the proper timing. The notes and the words must all be played and sung together at the same time and in the right way!
If this analogy makes sense to you, understand that it is a beautiful illustration of the Church!
Wouldn't you love for your church to make inspiring music like this? Music that inspires love! Music that inspires hope! Music that draws others to Christ!

Is your life in tune with God?

Have you found your tone?

Are you in sync with His timing?
