Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. -Philippians 2:1-2 NLT
Reflect | Notice that in these 2 verses, our attention is drawn to the amazing truth, that as believers, we belong to Christ. Because of this, our hearts should be tender, compassionate, and even agreeable! This is an outstanding advantage for our community since the opportunities for Christ-like influence are in abundance as are the number of congregations in our town!
Pray | Heavenly Father, today we come boldly to the throne of grace in our time of need. We pray for our congregations to rise up and fight in the spirit for those among us who are needy. Let us step forward and become that mighty army of believers, standing side by side, striving with a single mind purpose for the Gospel’s sake. Let us be relentless in prayer as we build together in our community. Acts 1:14 “They all met together and were constantly united in prayer…………….” Birth desire in our congregations to meet together and be constantly united in prayer. Thank you, Father, for we know this would be your desire too! In Jesus’ precious, powerful name, Amen!!
