Watching diligently that not any lack from the Grace of God, that no root of bitterness growing up may crowd in on you and through this many become defiled. HEBREWS 12:15
The purpose is threefold:
1. To encourage each other!
Therefore encourage one another and built up one another, as indeed you do
1 Thessalonians 5:11
And let us consider one another, unto incitement of love and of good work.
Not forsaking the assembling together of ourselves, as is the custom of some, but exhorting , and by so much more as you see the day drawing near.
But exhort yourselves each day, as long it is called today, that not any of you
be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
So therefore let us pursue the things of peace and the things for building up
But we the powerful ones, ought to bear with the weaknesses of the ones not powerful, and not to please ourselves. For let each one of us please his neighbor for good, to building up.
Who having come and seeing the Grace of God, rejoiced and he exhorted all
with purpose of heart to abide near the Lord.
2. To show hope to other young sheep!
(and not so young sheep lol)
3. To have fellowship, no matter where we are or wherever we are!
Jesus said; I will never leave you or forsake you! (Hebrews 13:5)
In talking with our Young sheep brothers, Jesus personally showed that scripture to quite a few of us and used that in our restoration to him and bringing us to a clearer mind and back to Jesus himself.
Therefore I and You and All of us can serve Christ wherever we are, because Jesus is right here with us, that is Amazing, amazing Grace!
If I can be in Christ, so can you. He loves me and he loves you just as much!
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, so you and I qualify! ( 1Timothy 1:15)
His Grace is sufficient for you and for me. There is enough Grace for you to reach his kingdom! Do you think you belong to him? Do you at least wish you belonged to him?
In the last couple of years a few of us have started to get together when we have opportunity. And with the internet, facebook, mobile phones, texting, messaging we can easily stay in touch with each other, encourage one another, help one another...
there seems to be a desire among us to reconnect, to share what God is showing us and doing in our lives.
