The Brotherhood

Jesus instituted a powerful force on the earth before he left. The church is full of brothers and sisters in Christ, people who are on your side. This is where you get the resources to be the best witness for Jesus you can be. They are cheering you on!

At least, that’s how it should be. Jesus made the church to be a united front, lights in the world. But we don’t always act the way we should. Sometimes, there are no resources in the church where there should be. Sometimes, other Christians don’t support and cheer you on like they should.

Scripture is clear that there should be no competition between us. We are supposed to be here for one another. But this doesn’t always happen. Unfortunately, there are uncommitted Christians in many churches. But they may be struggling with the same things you are in their attempts to share their faith.

We are called to be better than we have been. Once you find someone to support you, you have found gold. But maybe you let someone else down along the way. The mission is too great for one of us to complete it. We need each other!

I want to encourage you to be the one who steps out and helps someone else. You go first. You will find that as you step out and help others, they will want to return the favor. Let’s unite and work together to share Jesus with the world! Leave a comment below with the first step you can make to help someone else share their faith better.

    Sometimes, it is clear to me, that we must be the starting point for building Christian Community and Brotherhood, and sometimes, I am really tired, and I let my responsibility slide. It is at those times that I really need to dig in and pray, and I find, often, that God’s Grace lifts me out again.

    To me, it all begins with a life yielded in obedience to God, and a robust prayer and devotional (Bible studying) life. We need a close relationship with God in order to accomplish His will. How will we work for Him if we do not know what He wants us to do?! If we don’t have that foundation, we will be swept away in the storms of life. When we’ve built that strong foundation, nothing will be impossible! We cannot stand with someone else if we are being blown this way and that.

      Amen to that, Nichole!
