“It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.” Paul describes in Philippians 1:7. As Christians, we partake in each other’s hardships and joys. We are part of the family of God for a reason. He placed us on this earth so that we could rejoice when others rejoice and cry when others cry.
This was also the picture of the Acts 2 church. After Peter preached to the people on the Day of Pentecost, they began meeting together nonstop. They wanted to be together serving the Lord every minute they could. So they met in one another’s homes and broke bread together. They sold their things and gave them to the poor. Everything they did was for each other and for their community.
Do you know this type of fellowship? Do you love the church the way Paul did? Do you meet with other believers the way that the Acts 2 church did? If not, then you need to ask yourself why. Seek to serve the Lord today. You will be blessed.
