There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

67 The Beginning Work—Love

The working of love is a very familiar topic to most of us. Yet the width and depth of this work is far beyond our natural ability. Jesus said that we are to love as He loved, and that love was fully demonstrated at Calvary as He laid down His life for us. We are told that love is the bond of perfection and without this love we are nothing. We find ourselves challenged at every turn to experience and express this love. Our provision is God Himself, because He has put this love in our heart by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Now our responsibility is to work that love out through these bodies of clay.

Our program today is taken from some ministry given by Gordon Gentry in a home meeting in February 2001. The gathering was being prepared to recognize eldership in the foreseeable future. The emphasis in the ministry was that without fervent love, recognizing elders and benefitting from their ministry would not be possible. Thus the exhortation was to “give ourselves to fervent love.” I believe all of us can benefit from this strong exhortation to love expressed in action.
