"Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 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.”
Nearly all of the change and transformation we experience with God happens in community and authentic relationships. Healthy relationships provide you with a safe place to experience the freedom and redemption that Jesus came to give you—and help others experience the same. We meet regularly with other believers to encourage, challenge, and love each other as the family of God
Connect with someone you don’t normally connect with, and spend most of your time asking questions about their life, experience, and perspective, spending most of your time listening. This could be morning coffee, lunch, having them over to your home, or even a simple phone call.
Start each day this week by writing down a few things that you are thankful for. Try to avoid repeating any throughout the week.
Read through 1 Corinthians 13. Take note of the aspects of love that are the least natural, or most difficult, for you to exhibit, and pray for God to develop that more deeply in you each day this week.
"Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other."
