Christforums is:

.... an orthodox Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another forum.

Enjoy your fellowship

In order to understand the importance of Christian fellowship, we must first understand what Christian fellowship is and what it isn’t. The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. This relationship is described by Jesus in His high-priestly prayer for His followers in John 17:23. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces Christ centeredness in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

HUMILITY! How many times do we forget ourselves?

Recommended Posts

How many times do we forget ourselves in the heat of the debate and discussion or in the midst of gaining the accolades for the gifts of singing voices and the eloquent words we spill out over the world and forget where those gifts came from?

 

I just came to my senses when discussing a topic here and I wonder how many times other members have looked to the responses of others and the number of likes we get for the posts we make to fulfill some need within ourselves , instead of acknowledging where that skill came from?

 

How many of us in church have realized that we somtimes do things from the prase of others instead of glorifying God. How many times have any of us caught ourselves doing this?

 

I was doing just that a little while ago and I apologize to God for that insanity.

 

Thank you oh Lord for everything and all things. I am nothing without you. Praise to you in the highest.

Now, I'm wondering if I should like your post - I don't want to stir up pride! :RpS_flapper:

 

This part of that battle against the flesh that we all face every moment of every day - the number of times I have to remind myself I don't preach for the praise of men!
