I hope you will be filled with God’s love and blessing, and I want to share grace with you through the message entitled with “Fellow Workers of Faith.”
During World War II, when the sun was scorching, one platoon of the British army, who were in the middle of a field, was surrounded by the enemy troops. The only thing that could quench their thirst was a water bottle.
Water inside the bottle was not even nearly enough for all the soldiers to drink. Surprisingly, however, after all the soldiers had a chance to drink, more than half of the water bottle was filled with water. Since all the soldiers thought for the next person to drink, they only moistened their lips. They all cared for each other, so they were able to receive strength and could survive until the auxiliary troops arrived.
In the same way, we believers are fellow workers to each other, who are always with each other until we win the spiritual war for God’s kingdom. When we become united as one with love, the enemy devil and Satan cannot hinder our ministries and we can lead many souls to the path to salvation. Then, what do we have to do to become one with love?
First, we have to look out for each other.
Around us are some believers who are running the race of faith filled with the Holy Spirit and others who have got weary and exhausted and have a lukewarm faith.
If we give a hand and a word of encouragement to those who fell into a slump, they will be strengthened through us. Therefore, it is important for us to have a desire to look around the people around us and encourage them so that none of them may fall short.
If we find some brothers and sisters in Christ are not doing well and are turning to the world, we should not just watch, but give them strength and courage for them to participate in the flow of spirit.
Second, we have to help one another to fill our deficiencies.
1 Corinthians 12:21 reads, “And the eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you’; or again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.'”
We all believers are the fellow workers of faith in the Lord and the parts of a whole body. Hence, there are no parts of the body that is unimportant, and every part needs to exist for others. When we fill each other’s deficiencies with our gifts and cooperate with one another, the church, the body of the Lord will be established and shine the light.
For example, when a brother in Christ made a mistake and disgraced God, you should not condemn him but instead you have to pray so that he can gain strength, and you must become sorry for him for having not been able to help him. Moreover, if there are some things that he could not take into consideration, you can tell him about them and help do the duty on his behalf. This is the heart for the kingdom of God.
Therefore, I pray in the name of the Lord that you all may become fellow workers of faith who become united as one in heart, fill deficiencies one another, and bear one another’s burdens.
