This is for Everyone is the message of this year’s Hillsong Conference 2019.
With over 21+ denominations represented at the event, with 29,000 people expected to be in attendance with over 66 nations represented, how true is that message.
It creates a sweet sound for God, afterall how pleasing it is when brothers and sisters dwell in unity is what the Psalmist says (Psalm chapter 133).
Sometimes it feels like the Church is more divided then ever and it needs Prayer.
But I look at something like Hillsong Conference 2019 which still remains the largest conference in Australia, that get’s 21 different flavours of Christianity together.
I mean even getting one denomination or two different churches together can be problematic let alone a wider of Church of 29,000 people.
Just recently I attended a Combined Prayer and Worshiping gathering in the Byron Shire of Australia.
To get combined events happening in this day and age is a miracle and we went to a Church that graciously agreed to host it, but it was under the proviso that the music would not be too loud.
That was just a gathering of a few Churches, could you imagine trying to gather 29,000 people with 21 different denominations, could you imagine the magnitude of complaints?
But the fact is when people gather at Hillsong Conference 2019, the focus is not on our individual wants or desires but rather to worship with the greater body.
Hillsong’s focus is not to lift up themselves but the greater body, they seek to empower the local church, to champion the cause of the local and to see people, inspired to make a difference for the kingdom in their sphere.
That to me is truly a sight to behold.
