putting the "christian" in christian friendship

i read this yesterday and wanted to make sure you could read it, too!

"Is there anything distinctive about Christian friendship?
What’s different about how two fellow followers
of Jesus relate to each other, compared with two friends
who don’t identify with Christ? Romans 15:2 helps us
consider one essential component of what puts
the Christian into Christian relationship.

“Let each of us please his neighbor
for his good, to build him up.”

  1. Wow. Great post. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Friendship to build each other up is ceratinly a high calling, and so different from the world's kind of friendship, where you get together for fun, or to relieve loneliness, or to have companions to drink, etc. A good reminder! Patsy from
