    5 Ways You Can Build Faith Through Fellowship

    As the year begins, many Christians are looking forward to the opportunity to reconnect with God and commit to spending more time strengthening their faith. If this describes you, then Proverbs has some wisdom to share.

    “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” —Proverbs 27:17

    Now we have advanced ways of sharpening cutting objects, but in ancient times, one of the main ways of sharpening knives and things was to rub the blades together. As the blades rubbed together, they both became sharper.

    This verse from Proverbs isn’t really about sharpening tools—it’s about sharpening and strengthening our relationship with God through fellowship. When we share our relationship and what we’re learning from God with other Christians, it strengthens everyone involved. Here are some ways to do this.

    Girls, there are so many ways that we can encourage our sisters and brothers in the faith. We can build small communities to help others in their walk with the Lord. Think about it—isn’t it always better to take a journey with a good friend than to go alone?

    It’s difficult to discipline ourselves to seek God daily or even weekly. It’s even harder to seek God when times get rough, but if we have friends by our side keeping us accountable and encouraging us, the journey becomes a bit easier.

    I encourage you girls to find a partner or two and commit to helping each other grow and fall more in love with the Lord this year!

    “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!” —Psalm 133:1

    Girls, what are some other ways we can help sharpen each other in our relationship with the Lord?
