Knit Together in Love

“I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love.” Colossians 2:2 

Knitting is a worshipful experience that blesses not only the receiver but the giver as well.
Encouraging the hearts of others by lovingly knitting into their lives is both rewarding and
God Uses Everything!  Whenever I read Colossians 2:2, I imagine all believers “knit together” with an invisible thread of Christ’s Love. The verse comes alive as I ponder the comparison to the tools used in knitting. God fashions something exceptional with the instruments He uses.

  • Knitting Pattern – God uses each person’s uniqueness—physical characteristics, personality, and style, as well as skills, talents, and spiritual gifts. He uses the creativity He gives each person to make a difference in someone else’s life. (Psalm 139:13)
  • Yarn and Threads – God’s Immeasurable Love is the invisible fiber or cord that makes loops and stitches to wind through each believer’s spirit and connect with other like-minded souls. (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
  • Knitting Needles – The Holy Spirit encourages our hearts and produces incredible beautifully-woven fabric (the church) that captures the attention of the people around us and draws them to Him. Like knitted fabric that returns to its original shape after stretching, The Spirit also uses the elasticity of patience, gentleness, and self-control, to keep the church from unraveling. (Galatians 5:22-23)

You don’t have to be a knitter or needle worker to receive God’s Love and Truth from this daily devotional and others like it.

He can change your life through these readings, even if you’ve never picked up knitting needles and yarn or have no desire to do so. But, if you stitch, He can combine your love of knitting with your belief and faith in Him that blesses others and you!
Huge hugs…
Lots of Love &
Bountiful Blessings to you all
