It's all about expanding the culture of encouragement
Christians Encouraging Christians, Inc. is a nonprofit organization formed to expand the culture of encouragement. Through its mission and purpose it provides numerous resources to assist Christians in their determination to stand beside one another following the example of Barnabas – through sacrifice of self on behalf of others, through strengthening their spirit, and through patience and compassion.
The New Testament uses “one another” or “each other” over fifty times. We are commanded to love each other, pray for each other, encourage each other, admonish each other, greet each other, serve each other, teach each other, accept each other, honor each other, bear each other’s burdens, forgive each other, submit to each other, and be devoted to each other.
The Christian life is not meant to be lived privately, in isolation from other believers. As members of one body we have much to give each other in the way of encouragement. Sometimes just a smile will suffice. Sometimes we need more. Christ taught his disciples to love God and to love each other. How much more can we show our love to one another, than to pray for each other and to spend time together?
In God’s family we are connected to every other believer, and we will be connected for an eternity according to Romans 12:5. Being a member of the body means being a vital organ of a living body, an indispensable, interconnected part of the body of Christ. You will find your meaning and function as a part of His body. The individual parts of the body cannot exist or function on their own and neither can we. Separated from the lifeblood of the body, you will wither and eventually cease to exist.
Does your life affect anyone? I believe it does. You can create a ray of sunshine in another person’s life with one tiny deed. You can be the encouragement that another person so desperately needs. The fellowship of other Christians is vital to our survival and theirs.
Hebrews 10:25 “….. let us encourage one another..”
