Community: It’s more than just fellowship

Description: When we talk about community, the first thought that comes to mind is always fellowship. But it’s so much more than that.

Community gives us a platform to encourage–and in turn be encouraged–in the faith. It opens up opportunities for people to walk alongside us, help us mature in Christ (Ephesians 4:13) and simply to do life together.

These posters were created by and plastered throughout the guesthouse of YWAM (Youth With a Mission) Amsterdam to remind us how we can embody Christ in our relationships by encouraging others with God’s promises.

When we serve others, we serve Jesus.

 

The Bible never promised that life as a Believer would be easy. In fact, He told us to not only expect moments of great joy and peace but also troubles and trials. However, God gave us a community to stand by us and uses them to constantly remind us that He is always with us.

 

Be devoted to one another in love and honour one another above yourselves (Romans 12:10) When we honor others made in His image, we are honoring the Heavenly Father.
