Paul shows the depth and extent of comprehensive covenantal interdependence. When we rely upon God, we will rely upon His design for how individuals, families and local assemblies are to be covenantally connected in meaningful relationships of mutual accountability, assistance, and care. This network of powerful connectivity is to exist in families, locally between families, regionally and even globally, as the Kingdom of God encircles the globe.
