Bind us Together

So then, whenever we have an opportunity,

let us work for the good of all,

and especially for those in the family of faith.

Galatians 6:10

 

We are all part of a divine web of connectivity with one another. Often we live fragmented lives of individualism and at times isolation. But this is not the vision God has in mind. God calls us to be a people who form community with others. And our community is to be characterized by deep bonds of love with one another that spill over into the good of all those around us. God calls us to care for the needs and circumstances of others, especially the vulnerable and the suffering. As Christians, our minds are not just set on our own individual silos. Instead we live consciously of how our lives our bound up with the lives of others.
