Early believers came together as one and shared all. Love made this possible! “When you come together as a church” (1 Corinthians 11:17–22). When we Pray together, we experience God’s Presence. Matthew 18:20 (NLT) For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” Ephesians 3:12 (NLT) Because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.
The life we live, as Christians, is not just about focusing on what we have received. It is also about what we give. We are not to selfishly sit on this free gift we have received and only be concerned about our selfish interests. We are commanded to exercise the Love we have received, by being loving towards others as well. God expects us to reenact the Love He expressed towards us, to the people we come across in our daily lives.
And we pray:
Dear God, I desire to express The Love You have given me to my fellow brothers and sisters in The Lord. Father, help me to be attentive to their needs and their struggles so I can be a helping hand, ready to assist wherever I can. May I never be influenced or carried away by my selfish desires, Father. This I pray, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
