Let’s Get Together

For I will then restore pure speech to the peoples so that all of them may call on the name of Yahweh and serve Him with a single purpose. Zephaniah 3:9 HCSB

Wikipedia reports that the song “Get Together”, also known as “Let’s Get Together”, is a song written in the early 1960’s by American singer-songwriter Chet Powers. The song is an appeal for peace and brotherhood, presenting the polarity of love versus fear, and the choice to be made between them. In 1967, the music group The Youngbloods released their version of the song under the title “Get Together.” It gained widespread popularity when the song was used in a radio public service announcement as a call for brotherhood by the National Conference of Christians and Jews.

Heaven will be a place where all believers from all nations will come together in unity. In heaven God will purify our lips and unify our languages so we all can worship Him together. This is a reverse of the confusion of languages that occurred at the tower of Babel (Genesis 11). The words coming from our lips will be clean and pure, bringing honor and glory to the one God who deserves our praise and attention. It is only through Jesus Christ that there can be true unity and love among people.

Challenge: God’s desire is for all people to come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior and for all believers to come together in unity. Pray that God will use you as an instrument of peace to bring people together. Come on now, let’s all get together and love one another!
