The Power of Snowflakes

cold-1122721_1920I ‘m always mesmerized by snow as it blankets the earth. When it snows a hush and stillness permeates the atmosphere. There’s a great deal we can learn from snow. By itself, an individual snowflake is extremely fragile. It simply falls to the ground and disappears into the landscape of obscurity. However, when snowflakes unite and form a snow storm they can cripple a region and bring it to a standstill. The power of snowflakes is demonstrated in their unity.

Like snowflakes, God’s children are empowered to impact their environment. In Ephesians Chapter 4, the apostle Paul issues a clarion call for unity. Ephesians 4:16 says, “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Like the human body, the church, which is the body of Christ is designed to operate in unity.

Satan works feverishly to keep Christians divided in their beliefs and at odds with one another. The Bible says, “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand” (Mark 3:25).  Division stunts the church’s growth and impedes its progress. Unity on the other hand promotes individual and collective growth in the church. It advances God’s Kingdom and destroys strongholds. Psalm 133:1 says, “How good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.”

Unity empowered the Israelites to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem in a miraculous fifty-two days, even in the face of mounting opposition (Nehemiah 6:15). Kingdom work demands unity. We could achieve great things for the kingdom of God if we didn’t major in minor differences. Ephesians 4:5-6 says “One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

The recent nor’easters that hit us illustrate the impact of snowflakes when they unite. Together we can achieve so much more than we can divided. Imagine all we could accomplish if we came together and operated in unity. The world would never be the same!

Until next time…Be blessed!
