The Bible proposes a logical question in Amos 3:3 – “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” The answer is an obvious “no.” We live in a day of amazing communicating abilities. One of the basics of communication and unity is agreement. When a man and a woman are at the marriage altar, they are making a binding contract, or agreement, for the rest of their lives. They are in agreement. I have heard sermons on the home preached from Amos 3:3, and rightly so. The home needs to be a place where the family is walking together in the same direction. It is imperative that the husband and wife be on the same page.
Philippians 2:2 says, “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.” This timeless principle works with our marital lives, business lives, and family lives. However, in context, Amos 3:3 is speaking of Israel’s fellowship with the LORD. If they could not agree with the LORD, they could not walk with Him.
I John 1:9 tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The word “confess” means “to agree.” Do you agree with God about your sin? Do you call it what God calls it? Without this agreement with God, you and I cannot walk with Him. Let’s seek to be in agreement with our spouses and families, but most of all, with our God.
