“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel”
Philippians 1:27 NIV
When standing strong against the direct attack of an enemy, one defensive tactic Roman armies used was to flank each other, kneeling side by side with their shields in front, overlapping one another to create a strong barrier.
You and I were never meant to walk the Christian life alone; God made us for community. In a group of like-minded believers we can find the strength, encouragement and accountability needed to stand strong in a world that would like nothing more than to see us fall. Do you have a band of brothers or sisters who support you?🚦
