§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Acts 2:46, 47 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Our Textures to Touch. Topics:  2 at end.

“And, day by day, attending constantly in the Temple with one accord, and breaking bread in private houses, they took their meals with great happiness and single-heartedness, praising God and being regarded with favour by all the people. Also, day by day, the Lord added to their number those whom He was saving.”  WEY (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

When we are drawn to something because of its texture, (such as a bronze statue with a subtle gleam), what prompts us to want to touch it?  Maybe its shape.  But also its texture.  And how can we be of such a Christian texture that people who see us want to become acquainted with our texture?  Is this even possible?

Yes, it is.  Haven’t we all known people who draw us to them because of their personality?  Sometimes we say they have charisma.  There is just something about them that makes us want to be nearby.  We’re drawn.  So how can we have a charisma in the fabric of our lives, in our texture, so to speak?

Well, fabric has several aspects to it, and perhaps we could compare them to Christian ways.  The threads go more than one direction, the woof being the longer thread across which the warp is placed, over and under.  Our lives’ threads are the same; we go many different directions in life.  So how do our woof and warp call out to someone to touch us?

Sometimes it’s just by “being.”  A person with true charisma doesn’t really work at it.  It’s just there, in their personality.  The fabric of a Christian can be the same.  Because of Christ within us, people can just want to be close, to be with us.  And maybe part of this is our fabric’s “design.”  We know that the fibers of cloth can form any design that can be dreamed up.  Color enters into this.  What are our colors like, perhaps shaped into a pattern? 

Sometimes cloth is of one color only and is often useful for utilitarian tasks, such as a gray paint tarp or military green for a tent.  Much of the cloth we wear has design – and the most long-lasting may be designs with the colors in the threads instead of being painted on top.

Whatever our color or possible design, God has created us with the textures He wants.  Are you an army green, perhaps less eye-catching but so needed in military endeavors?  Or are you a fancy pattern of colors and shapes to draw a young person who loves bright clothing?  Whatever the colors, there is always texture in our lives.  And as Christians, others may be drawn to us, just as people were drawn to the first Christians, because of their texture from Christ.  Lord, help us be there when they need to touch someone with Your texture, especially if they are undergoing trials with LIFE choices.

Topics:  Pray for God’s textures in your life to shine through, to draw others to want to touch your life in Christ.
