What We Share


"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially those who belong to the family of believers" (Gal.6:10).

People who meet each other fairly often are likely to have an amount of concern for one another. If even a casual acquaintance of someone has a member of their family who has fallen ill or died, he or she would probably offer assistance. As Christians, we may short-change nonbelievers by thinking that they may be devoid of the feeling that we have for one another. The Christian answers to a higher calling however. Today's verse speaks volumes about the Christian ethic of love and service. As the apostle Paul writes to the church at Thessalonica, we find these important words: "May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you" (1 Thess.3:12). The love that Christians share is built upon more than just sharing a few laughs or common interests, though we do this also. We are bound together by our powerful confession of faith. We ought to belong to one another because of this wonderful shared bond to a common Lord. Brotherly love for each other is simply us modeling how Jesus conducted Himself. The love of God in Jesus will show us how to love one another. The love of Christians should overflow from the family of believers to others around us as the Spirit, through the Word of God effectively works in us. This is how and what we share....

Have a great day...Share your love... Love mark Phil.4:11
