whats in a handshake

What’s In a Handshake?

Paul speaks about a handshake of fellowship that was extended to him by the leadership of the early church. (Gal 2:9) Paul had tortured, persecuted & imprisoned many in the early church 10 years prior to this handshake. Instead of grasping their hand to chain them, Paul reached out his hand to agree with them. He went from dreaded enemy to fellow brother in Christ, extending the right hand of fellowship. We’ve been called to build up & edify one another. A simple handshake speaks volumes to someone in need of care, support & friendship. Don’t miss opportunity to bless & encourage someone with a pat on the back, an embrace or a handshake. There is nothing like being part of the family of God…we can shake on it!
