When we’re open about our faith with those around us, opportunities for fellowship embrace our lives and we may encounter loving friendships along the way.
Through having a Christ-centered conversation with one of my athlete’s mothers, I found out that she is also a sister-of-faith, in fact she is an ordained minister. I also found out she’s a single mom who leads an extremely active life caring for her 4 children. She is the epitome of someone who walks the talk. Rebecca is a woman of faith, conviction, and integrity. I’m so very thankful to have met her and I look forward to building our friendship!
Besides church, there are many other places to come in contact with people of faith. In being open and sharing our love for Christ we build upon our foundation of fellowship far and wide. I’ve personally made connections at work, at the gym, through social media, as well as within our neighborhood church.
Growing in faith socially with others is just is as important as building a foundation of faith within our spiritual self. He transforms us and prepares us for greater blessings. We become a stronger companion for those we love and cherish as well as, deepen our relationship with Christ. We set the pace for our children to want to become Christlike and live healthier, spiritual lives. Most importantly becoming an individual who is strong in their faith becomes a platform for others to look up to and find hope in having an unconditional loving Christ-centered relationship with the Lord and hopefully make the committed decision to submit before God their own desire for salvation.
“Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.”

“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.” ~2 Timothy 1:9
