Tonight the guys are putting on a night for the girls at the CSC and I’m very excited! Last night, the girls put on a human risk night for the guys on a lake lot and it was a lot of fun. I love the Christian fellowship we have here. We are here for one another in times of need and in times of elation. I believe this is what Paul was saying to the Romans:
“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”
That’s what the family is about. Honestly, if we go back to the time and place that both Christianity, and even before that Judaism, we see that they are rooted in the Eastern mindset. Life revolves around the family. To an American, this may not seem all that appealing, but I think it is beautiful.
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
Paul was adamant about loving the family. I think this is a lesson that less emphasis is placed on in the church today. Perhaps I am wrong, and I hope I am. However, if I am not, all is not lost. We can always start now. I encourage us all to grow closer to one another, and to our Lord above.
I am keeping my post short because we have a lot of prep work to do. But the word of God can teach this so much better than I can anyway, so the suggested daily reading will benefit you more. Have a wonderful day.
Suggested Daily Reading: Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 6, Galatians 5-6.
The Lord be with us all.
