Unity: Intentional Mutuality

Today I got the opportunity to tie some knots for a project I was working on. I love tying knots. A well executed knot is as beautiful as it is useful. A unique aspect to the knots I tied today was that I needed to join two pieces of rope together in order to extend the original rope. It’s finished form looked like two hands joining together.

 

Double Fisherman’s Knot


It reminded me of our church family. I’m so blessed to be a part of what God is doing here with this group of people he has joined me and my family with. It also reminded me of the passages we have been reading in Acts and how the early church not only relied on God, but also one another.

 

“The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers. A sense of awe came over everyone. God performed many wonders and signs through the apostles. All the believers were united and shared everything. They would sell pieces of property and possessions and distribute the proceeds to everyone who needed them. Every day, they met together in the temple and ate in their homes. They shared food with gladness and simplicity. They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47

 

Grace and peace,
