The Fellowship of Believers

"I thank my God every time I remember you." Philippians 1:3 (NIV)

What a glorious day the Sabbath was! Our daughter and son-in-law joined us for church while on their vacation and then joined me for a nice visit at the home. The congregation was friendly as usual. An anniversary party for friends later in the afternoon gave the opportunity to see and fellowship with many old friends and a chance to meet new and fascinating new ones!

When you count your friends among the fellowship of believers, time spent together is absent of jealously, gossip, and negative interchanges that bring one down, rather than energize and lift you up. Embrace those who embrace the Lord and you will be loved and cherished. Be prepared to bring prayer support to others as well and not just act as a sponge for the love of others. Those who wait upon the Lord, are both blessed and are a blessing to others. Let us pray:

"Father God, Abba, Daddy, you are the light that shines within me and flame that lights my path. Holy is your name and worthy of praise. May this day be the day when I remember the fellowship of your believers, loving them, responding to their need for prayer and not just become a "pleader," a receiver of your blessings. I love you Lord. Let my life be a testament to that love, that I may sooth the pain of others. I thank you Lord for all those you have given me and the new ones you have introduced. In the name of Jesus Christ, your son, I pray. Amen"
