When we have fellowship with other believers, we can influence one another to perform acts of kindness out of love for the Lord Jesus and thereby bring glory to God.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. (Heb 10:24-25 ESV)
. . . but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. (Heb 3:13)
When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. (Act 2:1)
Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing. (1 Thes 5:11)
Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless . . . (2 Pet 3:14)
These Scripture verses shown above demonstrate a number of good examples for us believers today:
- As we have regular fellowship, and we have the privilege of comforting and improving each other.
- It is good to encourage one another to perform kind and loving deeds.
- We should exhort (urge) one another to live holy lives, even as Jesus did.
- We should live in peace, harmony, and holiness.
- It is good to meet with other believers very frequently or to have fellowship through a phone conversation.
- Do not allow ourselves to become hard-hearted.
- When we do meet with fellow believers, it is important to be in one accord (unity, harmony).
As brothers and sisters in Christ, we can be an incredible blessing and encouragement to one another.
