A True Believer Should Understand That Certain Practices Are Required From Him or Her
(Passage: 1 Corinthians 16)
A Christ-centered church must ensure its members practice true love. The church must pray together and care for one another. Paul wrote to the Corinthian church and said,
“The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. The salutation with my own hand—Paul’s. If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. O Lord, come! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you. My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen” (1 Corinthians 16:19-24).
Work To Grow Your Church With Love As The Key Factor
The church of Jesus Christ was created for two major purposes; For brethren to offer corporate worships to God and minister to each others’ welfare. These two vital roles must be observed in every Christ-centered church. It is important that members of different churches understand the importance of a local fellowship. Believers must gather together to pray and exercise true love.
Members of different churches must not be “busybody”. A good church member must not engage in any practice that will negatively affect the growth of his/her church.
Every good Christian is expected to make sizable efforts to positively contribute to the growth of his/her church. God will reward anyone who contributes to the growth of the church. He will honor such a person in this life, and the one to come!
Make significant efforts to promote Christ-centered love in your church!
Love is a universal language. It might sound cliche, but love goes a long way. An act of love can save people from depression, suicide, or making other detrimental decisions. Christianity is centered on love and as Christians, we must be ready to show love every time. It doesn’t matter where you are, show someone love today and put a smile on their faces.Click to tweet
Prayer For Divine Assistance To Promote True Love
Dear God, please help our churches to practice true love so that your name can be glorified among the gentiles. Help all brethren to worship you together in spirit and truth. Also, help us to minister to each others’ needs in love. Let brothers and sisters in Christ make personal efforts that are necessary to keep the body of Christ together in unity. When the end comes, let every true believer converge at your feet in paradise to enjoy an endless fellowship with you. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
