Knit Together in Love

on September 28, 2013
“That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;” Colossians 2:2
Being knit together. When something is knit together, it is in unity with another. As sisters in the Lord, we are called to be united, knit together in God’s incredible love. We are called to put aside differences in our personalities and to love one another as God has loved us. We are to bear each other’s burdens. We are to weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. We are to care more about others than ourselves. We are to spend quality time with our brothers and sisters, as Jesus Himself did.
Being knit together is what God does to our hearts when we are willing. He is the knitter. He has the thread…the bond of perfection, which is His perfect, blind, sacrificial and unbreakable love. When we are in Christ, we are called to love that way. We are bound by love.
So is it okay for a Christian sister to dislike another sister? Is it okay for her to have a root of bitterness and unforgiveness in her heart? Is it okay for us to not show loving kindness to all of our sisters, regardless of whether or not they return our love? It’s not okay. It’s not okay to hate our sisters or to dislike them. If we are falling into that attitude and heart then we are wrong. God says to love one another for God is love!
Praying for deeper relationships to fill the churches of Jesus Christ. Praying that love and unity, not discord, would reign in the hearts of God’s people as He builds us up to be a temple and dwelling place for His Spirit.
