In One Accord

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV)

Sometimes in church we find people struggling spiritually alone. They either give up or remain immature because they don't have anyone to help them move forward or understand how to face the challenges ahead. Christians always have questions. Unless they find someone to respond to them, they will tend to find answers outside the church. This is where the stumbling begins.

As the Bible teaches us, we must support one another and pray for one another. We must hold our faith together to fight against the enemy of our soul. The other needs your faith and you need their courage and perseverance to stand your ground. It is by keeping this in mind that we will be able to accomplish the great mission entrusted to us, to go and make disciples in the world. I can't do it without you and you can't do it without me.

Even in our decisions and prayers as a Church, Jesus encourages us to be in one accord so that our prayers can be heard and answered, and His presence revealed. Matthew 18:20 tells us: "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Isn't that a good example to follow? Remember, you can be very good at what you do, but if you work with the others, you will bear more fruit for the glory of God.

May the grace and the peace of God be with you all.
