Staff Features: Koinonia

Hi, I am Evangeline Williams, and I am on staff with Living Proof Ministries. It’s my honor to share a word the Lord placed on my heart.

Do you have a word that is sacred to you in this season?

I do.

That word is “koinonia,” which means fellowship or to have things in likeness.

One truth to this fellowship is we cannot have fellowship with one another if we do not have fellowship with God.

The Bible tells us, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life—  the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we also proclaim to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.” – 1 John 1:1-4 (ESV)

So, how we have fellowship with God is only through Jesus Christ. He put on our humanity that we may take on His deity. This fellowship is to be enjoyed in Christ; therefore, our joy is made complete.

Psalm 16:11 says, “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence, there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

I have experienced many beautiful moments of koinonia. One of the ways I have experienced this fellowship is with the Word of God:

Philippians 2:1-2 declares, “If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.”

Koinonia is agreeing with one another, being united in purpose, and serving alongside each other. Our koinonia with each other is based on our common koinonia with Jesus Christ. I most certainly have experienced it during our Prayer Hour at Living Proof Ministries, during the time that our staff joins together before praying at noon with ladies that have come to receive prayer. When each person shares their Scripture, it blesses my heart to be aware of the reality of being in agreement with each other at this moment. Our koinonia with each other is being shared often with those who come for prayer. Jesus is brilliant.

Another way I have experienced this fellowship is communion with God. When coming to the Lord’s table of communion, we are sharing the Lord’s body through the breaking of bread and drinking the wine. Because Jesus died, was buried, raised from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. He now forever lives to make intercession for us, Hallelujah!!!

My husband and I get to share the moment of giving communion every first Sunday.  Often, I have experienced koinonia as I hand out the elements to those partaking in communion. I am very intentional in that moment; my eyes lock with their eyes as I say, “this is the Body that was broken for you sister (or brother).” You see, to me, these very words are the conviction of my heart coming alive as I hand out the bread. I am so aware of my brokenness and so grateful to the one and only Jesus Christ that loved us so much He said yes to God so He could fellowship with us.

I pray the Lord will lead you all to experiences of being in fellowship with one another. You will realize the beauty of what this fellowship brings.

Staff Features: Gratitude

We’re so excited to start a new series of posts written by our lovely Living Proof Staff. To kick off our series, our beloved Kimberly shares a piece on gratitude below:

Thanksgiving is just a day away, and it is never without effect. It will bring us to heighten the “attitude of gratitude”! Creating a climate of gratitude will bring US to where God is…or it will bring God to where WE are. Gratitude promotes a place of contentment we can live in, and from! He dwells most fully where He is acknowledged and honored! His Presence is REAL!

You rarely recognize gratitude in someone who thinks and speaks negatively about life. Negativity predicts the worst. It is rarely of faith. It feeds and is often fed by the enemy of God. In all circumstances choose to see your circumstances from a place that will create gratitude.

Never underestimate the power of “thank you,” as it cultivates a beautiful heart! Gratitude has many benefits and is for anyone who practices it even in the middle of adversity in life. Gratitude reduces anxiety and depression, as it improves mood through feelings like joy and pleasure! Gratitude promotes peace, which removes stress and often reduces symptoms of illness. Gratitude makes us feel closer and more connected to our relationships. Grateful people are more helpful, generous, and compassionate.

When we train ourselves to look at life with a perspective of gratitude over the natural default of negativity we embrace contentment and greater peace. To be honest, there is always more to be grateful for if we are looking for it!

“I will bless the LORD at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” -Psalm 34:1

-Kimberly

LPL Columbia, MO Recap and Printable

Hey you guys! I asked my good friend and LPL colleague Stephen Proctor if he would throw us together a print-out to help us remember our 5 Spiritual Fitness Resolutions from LPL COMO. I wanted one myself because I don’t want to forget them and thought perhaps some of you might want one, too. I will think of you with love and joy every time I see it. I had a blast with you. Jesus is so worthy, Sisters. Let the words said by the Apostle Paul be true of us, too, when our earthly lives draw to a close: “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.”

Summer Online Bible Study: The Quest!

Hey, you guys! If you haven’t done The Quest, come do it with us and finish the summer strong! It’s a 6 week series where the whole point is increasing intimacy with God. I think you’ll find the subject matter relevant for the turbulent world we live in.  Life is incredibly hard but so much of the grind gets exchanged for divine glory when we embrace life as Scripture presents it to the Christ follower: nothing less than the greatest quest a human being could ever discover. A quest where questions aren’t only allowed. They are encouraged. Come and see.

Grab a study journal, your Bible, and join us!
