Relieving Each Other - Communion of the Saints #4

Read 1John 3:10-18

In this fourth message on this important doctrine of the Church, we discover how in the Communion of the Saints, we have the ability to serve each other by the various needs and abilities given within the Church. This attitude of relieving one another’s needs was emblematic of the first generation church in Acts 4. John testifies that by opening our hearts, or closing them, respecting each other’s needs, shows whether we have life or death at work in ur faith, or whether we belong to Christ or not.

Communion in Worship and Service - The Communion of the Saints #3

Read Hebrews 10:16-25 with Ephesians 4:1-6

There are three key ways in which the communion of the saints finds expression. This message focuses on two of those ways as stated in the Westminster Confession of Faith ch.26.2 - in worship and in spiritual services. We are commanded not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but all the more we should be meeting for worship and prayer, for our Lord is returning. As well, the greatest spiritual service we can provide is loving one another as Christ has loved us.
