|I took this of my son teaching his nephew how to throw rocks.|
- Every day your heart pumps 2,100 gallons for blood through 60,000 miles of blood vessels.
- It takes 24 seconds for a drop of blood to circulate through your body and return to your heart.
- To make all this happen, your heart beats over 100,000 times a day when you're resting.
- During exercise a well trained heart can pump several times its resting output.
I doubt that there is in any language an equivalent for the Greek word for fellowship, koinonia.This word implies oneness and also a mutual flowing among the believers. When we enjoy fellowship with one another, there is a flowing among us...Perhaps the best illustration of fellowship is the circulation of blood in the human body. In a very short period of time the blood makes one complete circuit. Life depends on this circulation. Just as there is the circulation of blood in the human body, so there is a spiritual circulation, called the fellowship, in the Body of Christ (Life Study of 1 Corinthians, Pages 124-125).I like that these messages underscore again and again how God has called us into the fellowship of His Son, and this fellowship unites all the believers together.
