In order to advance the gospel in our world, Christians need to form partnerships with each other. But as we do, we will find our partnership tested. There will be dangers, opposition, threats and great demands. There will be the temptation to ease up, live life more to satisfy self, than to partner with each other to reach the world. There will be times when we do not trust each other. Today we will find out, that joy stands at the heart of an enduring fellowship in the gospel.
