We can practice fellowship by seeing and getting in touch with the big picture and goal of showing God’s glory to the world. We do this in all the many ways He has instructed us in the Bible.
Email. Internet. Video. Texting. Tablets. Smartphones. The list never ends, does it? As technology advances, real human connection becomes harder and harder. If we’re not careful, each new gadget can draw us further away from the family of believers God designed us to be.
If you want to experience a close community with other Christians, you must first escape the trap of superficiality and to develop tight bonds that will feed your soul and mature your spiritual family.
Often, God does spectacular work on our ordinary days—one conversation, one cup of coffee, one troubled soul at a time.
At any age, the greatest thing you can be is yourself. The godliest lifestyle comes out of authentic people who love Christ. That’s a beauty beyond description.
We all need love and friendship, especially when times are tough. Friends take the sting and loneliness out of life.
Those who God saves by His grace need to look out for those who haven’t yet come to the Saviour. Don’t make it hard for others by insulting those who aren’t living the life you would like them to live.
Be real, have fun, and be honest. When you live with authenticity and integrity your truthfulness is disarming.
We live in a world full of jargon. Chuck studied the Scriptures and found Psalm 23 has 73 per cent single-syllable words. The Lord’s Prayer has 76 per cent single-syllable words. First Corinthians 13 is 80 per cent single-syllable words. What does that teach us about communication?
Join Chuck Swindoll as he helps seminary students navigate those difficult relationships and serve with wisdom and love.
