jumping in...

January 12, 2012

Philemon 1:6 that the sharing of your faith…

MacArhtur tells us that the word “sharing” usually means “fellowship.” It’s a much deeper meaning than simply having a potluck on Sunday night. It’s a sharing of our lives with other believers. It’s a jump into the deep end with other people who believe like you and you all sink or swim together. It’s actually putting flesh to the term “body of Christ” and walking with them. It’s telling them your problems and listening to theirs; knowing that they will pray for you and you being faithful to pray for them as well. All of this is sharing, but like most of our lives what is good and perfect is often corrupted by our personal sin.
