Happy Monday Saints.
Ephesians 1:15 “I HEARD ABOUT YOUR FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS AND YOUR LOVE FOR ALL THE SAINTS.”
When you accepted Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you didn’t join a religion; you became a part of God’s family.
The church in Ephesus wasn’t just known for their faith in the Lord Jesus; they were also known for their “LOVE FOR ALL THE SAINTS.”
The Thessalonians did such a great job loving “THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS” that the Apostle Paul wrote in 1Thessalonians 4:9, “YOU DON’T NEED ME TO WRITE TO YOU BECAUSE YOU YOURSELVES ARE TAUGHT BY GOD TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.”
How’s your love “FOR ALL THE SAINTS?” How’s your love for your fellow believers in Christ – your brothers and sisters?
The church isn’t a building – it’s the Body of Christ, and 1Corinthians 12:25 says that “THE MEMBERS SHOULD HAVE THE SAME CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER.”
The church isn’t a place where the pastor alone loves and cares for the congregation – it’s a body of believers where EVERY MEMBER takes care of one another.
Ephesians 4:16 mentions, “THE WHOLE BODY JOINED AND KNIT TOGETHER BY WHAT EVERY JOINT SUPPLIES, ACCORDING TO THE EFFECTIVE WORKING BY WHICH EVERY PART DOES ITS SHARE…”
You have a “SUPPLY,” and you have something to “SHARE” with your brothers and sisters. You have love to give to “ALL THE SAINTS.”
Part of our Christian maturity is learning that church isn’t about what we can receive from our local congregation but rather what we can do to love, serve, support, help and encourage our “BROTHERS AND SISTERS.”
How’s your “LOVE FOR ALL THE SAINTS?” Reach out to someone this week and give them the “SAME CARE” you’d like to receive if you should ever require some help one day.
Have a fabulous week. God bless, and lots’a love,
