A Non-Denominational Ministry of Our Heavenly Father
Sharing the Word of God... World-Wide
It is not good for man to be alone....
When we read this, many think about marriage and the Mindset of Our Heavenly Father when He made Eve for Adam... Today we will learn that it went much farther than that. Loneliness is a condition that we are to avoid. It will cause a person to grieve and consume us both in a physical and a spiritual form.
Both our Spiritual Body and our Physical body are independent and interdependent. They both need others in order to function as intended. The importance of fellowship are explained by Jesus, when He went to visit Martha and Mary. As Martha complained about all she was doing (without Mary's help), Jesus told her that it was Mary that was doing what was needed.
38As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. 40But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!" 41"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, 42but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
A true fellowship takes TRUST, a way of acknowledging a bond between people. Our Heavenly Father uses FREEWILL as a means to show His trust in His Children. I am sure we have all heard the expression "If you love someone, set them free, if they return, they are yours. If they do NOT return, then they never were yours." This expression makes so much sense, because it is BASED on Scripture in Our Bible.
1John 2:19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
Many of the members of SalvationFirst Ministry, are alone... But are not lonely! As long as we have "family" that cares about us, then we are never really "ALONE" (Where two or more are gathered in My name) You should know that SalvationFirst currently has over 1,000 members. With that many brothers and sisters praying for your problems, we have POWER to get our prayers from our hearts and lips, all the way to the ears of Our Heavenly Father! We NEVER are, and never will be alone!
When a spouse left you, you were not alone!
When a son or daughter went to Middle East, They (and you) were not alone!
When you could not get out of bed to attend church, you were not alone!
When The Adversary attacked your finances, you were not alone!
When you are driving down Interstate 75, miles from your family, you are not alone!
When your children are away in college, you are not alone!
As long as you have Jesus Christ, Our Heavenly Father, and The Holy Spirit... YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
We should always remember, "The Family we are a part of, we are NEVER apart from!" When we pray for each other, we show Our Heavenly Father we are HIS FAMILY. We share His LOVE for us, when we pray for each other... When our children share tender moments with each other, it warms OUR HEARTS. It is in this same manner we show Our LOVE for Abba Father... Pray for me, and YOU will not be alone!
