As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. – Proverbs 27:17
EverLoving Father, you created us out of love, because you are love itself and your new covenant of love, taught to us by none other than your beloved Son Jesus, gives implicit instruction that we love our God and also our neighbor, with an absolute and selfless love. You have established this covenant with us, so that by loving communication and communion, we may spread the good news of your Kingdom, which is for all.
We need to deepen our faith and increase our community, building and extending the Church population, by abiding in Christ and invoking all others to do so. Our Christian mission is the evangelization of souls for the glory of our God and for the good news of eternal salvation for all who believe. Only by constant communion and contact, by teaching and preaching, by example and good conduct can we draw our fellowmen to know and love you.
Lord, we pray that we may be good conductors of the faith. We need to live exemplary lives in order to influence others to the faith. Through constant and earnest fellowship with our brethren, we need to increase, deepen and motivate each other for our mutual benefit in Christ Jesus. Help us Lord, to strengthen our community of members in Christ, with zeal and charity, to make disciples of the world in Jesus’ Name. Amen
