Those of us who know Jesus Christ as their savior should have very, very strong ties. We are forever connected to Him and to each other. In Roman 12:5 Paul says, we being many are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. We’ve been born of God. And we love those who are begotten of Him (1 John 5:1).
When we get together with fellow believers, we have the opportunity to talk about the one we love-Christ-and of the love, forgiveness and grace we have experienced in Him because of His death and resurrection (1 John 4:9-10. At such time we can encourage each other to continue to trust Him and spur one another on to be faithful in our walk with Him. Let’s remind fellow believers of all that Jesus has done and of how truly wonderful He is.
