In today’s thoughts, may we see another important ingredient to the christian walk, that of christian fellowship with like-minded believers; which keeps us accountable for our actions. This is why attending church and our fellowship with christian believers is so important to every child of God.
Just as Jesus spent time in fellowship with His followers so we are to fellowship with like believers.
- Hebrews 10:25 (NLT) And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Christian fellowship is a key ingredient in the christian walk; true happiness which comes from a relationship with Christ. There are three components when applied together in one’s life which will bring about true happiness.
Let’s take a look at these components which make up a happy life; they are:
- purpose (or direction),
- peace (peace of mind) and
- a love and compassion flowing in and through our own lives through Christian fellowship.
There must be a true purpose and direction in one’s life; a right kind of purpose based in and on Christ or you might say, Christ is the foundation of one’s life. There must be a trust in something beyond this life…in the Eternal; a purpose with identity, being identified with Christ.
Along with a purpose in life you also need peace of mind. We live in an environment that places limitations in and around our lives. We are limited by our senses, of time, of space, and of an unpredictable future. For we know not what tomorrow will bring. It takes supernatural power to live a life of peace.
Christ gave us this peace when He went to the cross. His death on the cross and through the power of His resurrection, has made AMPLE PROVISION FOR THE PEACE WE SO DESPERATELY NEED FOR HAPPINESS. Yes…we can win the battle against the enemies of our peace of mind through faith in Christ Jesus.
There must be a flow of love and compassion in our lives which is the foundation of true happiness. Again let me say the love of Christ provides a basis for a lasting peace of mind. We must come back to having a relationship with Christ and it will become a fellowship; which will bring about a love and compassion for our fellowman.
True happiness comes when we have love and compassion for others; including the lost and hurting of this world.
Let’s begin TODAY to:
- Share Love and compassion,
- Share God with those around us and
- Share Life.
A life of emptiness transformed into a life of meaning… a life of purpose…lives full of love and compassion for your fellow man. Yes, Share Life together!
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
