Human beings are, by creation and nature, social creatures. No one lives absolutely isolated from everyone else. Interaction with other people is indispensable for our mental health and civic wellbeing. Even though fellowship with others might be difficult, still it is necessary for us as humans and even more so as Christians.
Here are some verses that have taught me to seek fellowship for myself and to provide it for others. We need each other, plain and simple. As a pastor, I care for my congregation and I try to show each and every person in the fellowship that they are important to me. I want them to be well-taught, to be instructed in righteousness and to be prepared for all good works.
"How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" Psalm 133:1.
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--- and all the more as you see the Day approaching," Hebrews 10:24-25.
"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved," Acts 2:46-47.
Spiritual battles are going on all around us. We often find ourselves in the thick of it. So, please pray for us in Mexico and for all the people to whom Rancho Santa Fe and El Camino Agape seek to minister to. The battle is too big for us alone, the enemy is too evil. We need your help, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective,” James 5:16b. But thankfully the battle belongs to the Lord and He will obtain the ultimate victory! 2nd Chronicles 20:15; Psalm 60:12. Most of all we need the help of the Lord, Psalm 20:7. We really appreciate your fellowship in prayer, interceding for us makes a positive difference. Alabado sea nuestro Dios. May our God be praised!
