Together We're Better
by Jana Kennedy-Spicer on June 13th, 2016

 
One of the most beautiful aspects of being a child of God, is that in addition to being reborn into a new life, we are also reborn into a new family.

God calls us unto Him and welcomes us into His family.
 
If you are a member of a close family which loves and supports each other, the idea of becoming a member of God's glorious family, is probably very exciting.
 
​However, if your family life has not been so loving, or even hurtful, it may be difficult to envision being a member of a loving and supportive family. But with God, there is hope.
 
As family members, our Heavenly Father, calls us to fellowship together. This type of fellowship allows us to
  • encourage others and be encouraged
  • walk together with each other and Jesus
  • deepen our relationships with one another and with God
  • spend time with every one and with our Heavenly Father
  • be of one heart and mind, together and with Christ
  • live joyfully in unity with our family member and God
  • work together in perfect unison to further the work of The Kingdom
 
God's Word provides beautiful encourage for His children, so I've collected

7 Scriptures to Build Fellowship Together
 


Hebrews 10:24-25
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see
the Day drawing near.

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

Acts 2:42
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

Matthew 18:20
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.

1 Corinthians 12:12
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.

Psalm 133:1
How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!

Ephesians 4:16
He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

Love these thoughts on fellowship and am so thankful for the lovely women of my church with whom I am doing a summer book club! I think this may be my first visit to your beautiful writing home.

This is gorgeous! Just shared with my readers - I know as women's ministry leaders they'll find lots of uses for this - small groups, women's ministry team, retreat quiet time prompt, etc. I often site Hebrews 10:24-25 as a Biblical reason for women' s ministry. :)

Thanks for sharing Cyndee! I'd love to hear how your ladies use the resource ... and how it can be improved. I love providing these types of study resources. Sometimes we just need a little something to get us going.
Thanks again for sharing and for all of your support!
Blessings, Jana
