Koinonia

In Acts 20:31, 36-38, Paul’s relationship with the Ephesian elders is a beautiful example of Christian fellowship. They cared for and loved one another. He cried over their needs. They expressed sorrow over his leaving. They prayed together and comforted each other. Like Paul, you can build strong relationships with others by sharing, caring, sorrowing, rejoicing, and praying with them.

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 2:14

14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
