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.
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
12 We beg you, our friends, to pay proper respect to those who work among you, who guide and instruct you in the Christian life. 13 Treat them with the greatest respect and love because of the work they do. Be at peace among yourselves.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
1 John 1:3
3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
