Paul writes to the church in Corinth saying “...Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you." 2 Corinthians 13:11 NLT
What a wonderful challenge for us as well.
...to be joyful
...to grow to maturity
...to encourage one another
...to live in harmony
...to live in peace
A few verses later Paul expresses a desire that I believe is the key to meeting this challenge. "May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14 NLT
Only through the grace of Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit can we truly find joy, maturity, encouragement, harmony and peace.
The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit - Grace, Love and Fellowship - What a great combination to have working in your life.
There's help to meet today's challenges.
