THE INTEREST OF OTHERS

Philippians-2-4-Look-Out-For-The-Interests-of-Others-copyOne of the best ways to experience joy in the Christian life is through community. God gave Elijah rest and then sent a man Elisha, to help him in 1 Kings 19:19–21. Everyone needs friends to share all hurts pains says Ecclesiastes 4:9–12. Hebrews 10:19–25 says, “Brothers and sisters . . . let us consider how to spur one another on toward love, good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some do, but encourage one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”Philippians-Page-001Because of the grace of God, all can now approach God confidently in prayer says Hebrews 10:19. Once cleansed of our sin according to Hebrews 10:22 and joined into new community family of believers. Together with fellow believers, hold firm to faith, trusting in the character of God. Strengthened to encourage one another. Christians do not belong to this world so citizens of heaven stated in John 17:14–16; Philippians 3:20. The ultimate joy is reunion longing to be with God, finally restored to man’s original design. Life can be lonely and discouraging for some. Others help to remind Godly love, truth, carry burdens, encouarage, strengthen says Galatians 6:10; Colossians 3:12–14.
