Organizing the Inside – Day 341 A Joy In Serving

1If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Philippians 2:1, 2 (NIV)

Have you ever needed a friend to carry your load? Have you ever been in a place where you felt you couldn’t pray for yourself? A time when whatever you were going through seemed almost overwhelming and you needed someone close to carry your burden for a while. Be ready to step in and hold one another up in prayer. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2 (NIV)

What a rewarding joy it is to be there for a sister in need. Paul often addressed the importance of Christians sharing, supporting and encouraging each other. To thrive as a Christian community it’s necessary for us to genuinely care for each other and not allow the enemy to create dissension.  We ought to consider our true brothers and sisters and take care of one another. 48Jesus asked, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” 49Then he pointed to his disciples and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. 50Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!Matthew 12:48-50 (NLT)

When you know your Christian sister is going through a trial, look for ways to help carry her burden. Sometimes a prayer or word of encouragement is all that is needed to help lighten a load. Remember … A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17 (NLT)
