Individually, we are obligated to seek after God and His Kingdom. Collectively - as faithful believers in Jesus Christ - we are to follow Paul’s counsel to exhort one another (Hebrews 3:13).
Day 19 – Restoring Broken Fellowships
The reality is that restoring broken relationships, to be reconciled with others, is quite a difficult task for us to undertake. Yet, it is significantly important to the Gospel of Jesus Christ that we are humble, sincere, contrite, and motivated by the spirit and love of God to go forth with faith and purpose to seek reconciliation.
Day 18 – Cultivating a Vibrant Community of Faith for Spiritual Growth and Maturation
A vibrant and healthy fellowship and community is place where we all are able to come and know we belong. Where there is kindness, empathy, charity, compassion, forgiveness, willingness to be honest, discreet, share with confidence, and keeping in confidence those things we share one with another. All of us are walking our own spiritual paths and experiencing our own spiritual journey - however, it is not meant for us to do so alone. We strive to be complete, unified, and in harmony because of the pure love of Christ.
Day 16 – Our Need to Belong and Fellowship
If my life is in chaos, I want to look into myself for the cause and the cure and use a fellowship of others where I am able to safely expose my shortcomings through vulnerability and courage. I seek out a fellowship with a group of others where it is a living and functioning unit where each one of us come and sharpen ourselves in order to find the cure for our sufferings. Not only the fellowship of a weekly group of others engaged in finding solutions to their own sufferings but a connection with another to continue to learn and grow in faith, spirituality, and journey. I seek to be sharpened just as I hopefully am able to sharpen another.
Bear Ye One Another’s Burden
As I started connecting with others within the Christian faith, my own problems were brought into crystal clear focus. When I shared with others, and they shared with me, I found to give some thought and compassion toward them. Through our mutual bonding and sharing I was able to gain a peace of mind. Only because of the ability to sharing experience and hope that makes fellowship with others an important aspect for growing in faith and grace. My spiritual journey is not one I have to venture on alone.
