We’re making up for lost time and doing a double take on The Bridge today.

As the world becomes more divisive, God’s Church is coming closer together in two big ways.

  1. Fellowship — All ages and backgrounds share a kindred fellowship.
  2. Working Together — Three generations work side-by-side to get jobs done that help build and move the Church forward.

Prepare yourself for an overload of happy faces on both videos.  Whether fellowshipping or working, all three generations are smiling!

Love.  Love Will Keep Us Together.

On fellowship night during our last meeting, we bonded over hotdogs, nachos, UNO, Rummikub, Sequence, and catching up with precious friends.

The Ministry laid out a path of salvation for us individually and as a Church.  Don’t tolerate anything that destroys morale or erodes trust within the family of God.  Protect what God gave us as a Church by fiercely relying on Him and loving one another.

We Bet You Think This Song Is About You.

If the shoe fits, you’ll be glad.  This uplifting melody matches the atmosphere of our fellowship and the joy we share.

Our Christian Heritage

For our entire history, the Body of Christ has been an enduring force, and has risen above the world.  Like Christians of the Bible and those who paved our way, we will continue to overcome challenges of our time and defeat the enemy.  Once we conquer our own nature, all other enemies will fall at our feet.

The Body Of Christ

Here’s the whirlwind tour:  we’re a people with revelation of truth, and we’re striving to overcome.  We’re faithful to God, His Ministry, and each other.  We’re well-versed in scriptures.

Our Ministry is the strongest it’s ever been.  It isn’t resting on battles we’ve won in the past, but preparing us to win tomorrow’s fight.  Our Apostle is not stagnant, but working fervently to lead the Church into the Bride of Christ.

We do what is right for God’s Kingdom.

When God calls, we’re ready.  When we fight, we win.  When we pray, He answers.

The world will one day see who we are, God’s people.  His love is our trademark and it’s unmistakable.

Special Privileges

It’s a privilege to be part of the family of God.  Our bonds are strengthened during uncertainties when we step up to help each other and during fun times as we share our stories, grow with each other, and build friendships that will last an eternity.

Can you think of a stronger bond than laughing with someone?

Overcoming is hard and sometimes miserable, but the hardships we survive as a family build cohesion.  These moments together are what we’ll remember most as we finish the race and hang up this earthly life for good.

The Enemy

Never take the enemy for granted.  We will be tested.  Be brutally honest with ourselves and know the enemy never rests.  Strive to do a better job of taking care of our own spiritual life, and then do a better job of looking out for each other.

Love Drives Unity

Elder raised this Church to stand united in God.  Like-minded people are drawn together, but our unity is centered on something more important:  serving God and eternal life.  We not only want to be together, we need to be together.

If we laugh together, cry together, and pull up who falls, we will thrive together—shattering the enemy’s cohesion. 

No Wi-Fi In Heaven

Better start connecting with each other here, so look up and smile.  Be good to one another.  The tiniest things make big differences.

 A Threefold Cord Pulls A Mighty Weight

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.  Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?  And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Three generations in the Body of Christ are working together to serve the Lord, His people, and each other.  These pictures reflect generations interacting beautifully with each another.

Generation One (G-1s)

They are the original group that started with the Elder as he began building.  The G-1s are the experts and have all the experience in servitude.  They’ve been at it a lot of years and learned how to do things with the right spirit and in order.  We’d be lost without them.  G-1s are looked to as the foundation giving guidance, instruction, and example to the generations that follow them.

Generation Two (G-2s)

The G-2s are experienced, yet still growing.  They are in the process of building themselves and each other.  G-2s are learning to work together to get the job done in the right spirit and order.  This generation is preparing for greater responsibilities as time goes on.

Generation Three (G-3s)

We look at the G-3s with optimism and hope.  They are the torch that we send burning bright into the future, carrying the Gospel.   They are being shaped by encouragement and instruction in God’s order as they find their place in the Body of Christ.  The vibrant G-3s are full of life and bring renewed energy to the Church.

God Has Blessed Us All Differently

Some Christians are bolder, more confident, wiser, musically inclined, or stronger prayer warriors.  We all have different abilities, but one purpose, advancing God’s Kingdom.  It’s amazing to see how the Lord is using the Body of Christ.

Elder tells us each to work in the calling God gave us.  By supporting each other, everyone will be successful on all fronts.

Fully leveraging talent and ability of every person called to the Body of Christ ensures that God can count on us to bear spiritual fruit for His Glory.

We practically know each other now, so come on out to The Church at Onslow.  We’ll make you feel at home 🙂

One thought on “TWO THINGS UNITING OUR GENERATIONS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST

  1. What a great representation of God’s love in us! We are so intertwined like the knitting of a weaver’s loom and one generation does not exist on its own. We are a lively people and I feel God’s favor on us as a people. Sister DeeDee
