Fellowship Among The Brethren [2]

Thursday 28th February 2019 Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- 2 Thessalonians 3:6-14
Topic:- Fellowship Among The Brethren [2]
Text:- Psalm 119:63
C. Fellowship in Psalm 133:3 among brethren is described from a natural perspective, like the dew which drops down to refresh all the grass and crops and causes them to grow, which in turn gives life to mankind.
1. In verse 2, he likens the fellowship to something that brings spiritual life, because the High Priest stood between the living and the dead to make atonement for the people to receive life from God.
D. The Discipline With The Believer’s Fellowship:
1. Love in the fellowship among believers must be balanced with control, check and discipline. Sin must be rebuked and gotten rid of, else it destroys the fellowship life of believers. That is why there must be discipline within the believers’ fellowship.
2. We are to exert discipline over the people that are not living right, “who having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away”, 2 Timothy 3:5.
3. True believers should not make friends with hypocrites who have a shallow religion, devoid of the power to overcome sin. There must be separation from every brother or sister who “walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us”, 2 Thessalonians 3:6.
4. We are not to encourage backsliders, but to point them to the way of repentance and restoration. “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourself, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward”, 3 John 7, 8.
E. The Demonstration Of Love In The Believers’ Fellowship:
1. The discipline of a few erring believers should not hinder the flow of love in the believers’ fellowship. We are to increase in love, compassion, mercy and in helping one another. See 1 Thessalonians 4:9.
2. Paul, the Apostle, with all the gifts and power of the Spirit was concerned about the absence of one of his converts in a meeting “I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother”. That is the attitude of somebody that has love and is really in fellowship. See 2 Corinthians 2:13.
3. True fellowship means caring and being concerned for one another. In this time of adversity, we ought to be encouraging, praying for, talking to and developing one another. See Malachi 3:6.
4. Words of love and encouragement given to a faltering brother or sister will not go unrewarded by the Lord. We must endeavor to strengthen those that are weak, restore the backsliders, help the feeble and watch over our own lives that we are not taken away from the fellowship of the people of God.
Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, let my faithfulness in attending Church meetings henceforth be rewarded for good, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, help me to grow spiritually and to resemble You as I fellowship sincerely henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, as I fellowship with my brethren henceforth, help me to reign and have fellowship with You in Your heavenly kingdom, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have a Lovely Thursday!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
