Following by Dr. John Woodward - Grace Fellowship International

In His insightful book, The Father Heart of God, Floyd McClung Jr. emphasizes the grace of God which should flow in our Christian fellowship. "As we love and accept and forgive one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, God's love flows through us to heal one another.Through our brothers and sisters in God's family, God provides the kind of love and acceptance that frees us from our fears and allows us to experience greater wholeness as people. We can be committed to others without fear of rejection. We can accept others in spite of their weakness. We can forgive others even when they hurt us . . . All this is true because of God's grace. It is His grace, His undeserved love,that does this for us. We don't have the ability in ourselves to be so loving, but God enables us to love. We don't have have the ability in ourselves to heal one another, but through us God heals others. Every Christian has this ministry. Each of us can be a grace-giver'.

"If we miss out on the expression of God's love though fellow believers, Christ's sufficiency is our safety net. Paul had a lapse of Christian support shortly before his martyrdom. "At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them. But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me,. . . (2 Tim 4:16,17). Our Lord Jesus was disappointed in his sleepy prayer partners at Gethsemane, but an angel was sent to strengthen Him. (Luke 22:43). Our Lord will never leave or forsake us! (Heb 13:5).
