For God’s Sake: a community in Christ

| Michael Bannon
In our weekly COMPASS leadership prayer meeting, one brother prayed for a growing sense of community in our congregation.

Their sense of community was not self-motivated but the evidence of their unity in the Spirit together with Christ through faith in His gospel.
