How are you? I hope your week is off to a great start.
Yesterday, we had a light party for the children at the kids' church and it was such a beautiful event. All the children were full of joy, they had fun engaging in different creative Biblical activities that were centred on 'Be The Light'. Most of the children did not want to leave the kids' church as they had too much fun with one another.
The children's light party made me reflect on the importance of fellowshipping with other Christians. Sometimes we underestimate the benefits of spending time with our church family. I would like to share 3 benefits of why we should spend time with our church family.
1) There is something special when we sing and pray together. We are strengthened in the place of prayer and we are sharpened in the things of God. After all, Proverbs 27:17 says "Iron can sharpen iron. In the same way, people can help each other."
2) We are able to socialise and celebrate with one another. If your countenance is different from how you are normally, your church family would likely check on you and support you accordingly.
3) Creating time to fellowship with our church family helps us to develop a number of people's skills (how to relate with others, listening skills, patience, punctuality, improving your talents and skills, serving one another, and many more).
When Jesus Christ was on earth, most of the time, He spent time with His disciples. This is a reminder that Christ is the perfect model of the importance of fellowship.
I love hearing from you in the comment section. Please take a minute to share why you create time to fellowship with other Christians.
Have a lovely week!
