GOOOOOOOOOODDDDDD MORNING, AFTERNOON & EVENING TO YOU ALL!!
For all my American people I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving/Turkey celebrations. I ate all the orishirishi that there was after all I only get to eat proper momma home cooking once in a while and it was so nice to take a break from campus food.
Its Monday morning and the question for the week and thought is how connected are you to people and most importantly your brothers and sisters in Christ?
Many people sees fellowship as a Sunday or Wednesday mid week service ritual but the honest truth is that it goes beyond that. Fellowship is breaking bread with one another, knowing the well being of the other person, sharing and strengthening each other in this journey we as Christian choose to embark. Overall fellowship is belonging to one another.....How many times have you overlooked the "one another" commands in the Scriptures? I will list a few of them because the one probably in your head right now is the "Love one another" command.
Love one another - John 13:34
Be devoted to one another - Romans 12:5
Honor one another - Romans 12:10
Rejoice with one another - Romans 12:15
Serve one another - Galatians 5:13
Carry one another's burden - Galatians 6:2
Forgive one another - Ephesians 4:32
Encourage one another - 1st Thessalonians 5:11
Offer hospitality to one another - 1 peter 4:9
Confess our sins to one another - James 5:16
Pray for one another - James 5:16
My prayer is that God give us the strength, ability and wisdom to connect with one another each and every day.
This post was inspired by Joshua Harris. In December I will be doing a series about Church Dating with a lot of stuff from the book called "Why Church Matter" formerly publish as "Stop Dating the Church" by Joshua Harris. It is going to be a very interesting series and I can't wait to share it with you all.
Have a lovely week y'all.
