Take time to pray and ask the Spirit to guide you
as you read and reflect on the passage today.
” For I long to see you, that I may impart to you
some spiritual gift to strengthen you
— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged
by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.”
- Christian community is so important. Why does Paul desire to spend time with the church in Rome?
- How does he express his desire to fellowship with the believers in this church?
- Here is Paul, amazing man of God, writer of most of the New Testament and he is expressing his “longing” to spend time with these fellow believers so that he can be encouraged. Does this change your perspective on the leaders of your Church/Bible Study/Small Group and how they need to learn and grow and be encouraged by you?
- Our faith grows when we are active in a Biblically sound Christian community. If you are not currently engaged in this way… pray about how you could become connected at Church or in an internationally offered Bible Study like Community Bible Study. What are some steps you can take today?
Praying that you will be mutually encouraged as you fellowship and learn alongside other believers. May the Lord develop friendships in your life that will last into eternity! Praying for you!
