In reading a couples experience in a congregation of believers, it was sad to hear of the difficulties they faced, until the found a true Spirit filled church. We stand in need of much prayer and Helen p. Feel free to ask, it should be more “What’s mine is yours and vice versa.” I wrote this in response knowing they had met a real set of believers.
In truth we today are in a straight. The early church, everything was shared, especially prayer. If we recall in reading about Ananias and his wife, they sold their belongings to contribute to the church, but withheld some knowingly, in their desire to not give freely they were punished. Every congregation by God’s grace is made up of individuals from all walks of life. A church should be a blessing place of constant giving. The Word says “Pray without ceasing.” I add “Give without season.” That could mean many things; no time for giving, open your heart to always give, And give without ceasing from an open heart with Love. Be blessed IJN.
