1 Corinthians 16:15-18
Now, brothers, you know that the household of Stephanas were the first people in Achaia to put their trust in the Messiah, and they have devoted themselves to serving God’s people. I urge you to submit yourselves to people like these and to everyone who works and toils with them. I am glad that Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus are here, because they have helped make up for your not being here. They have refreshed my spirit, just as they have yours. I want you to show appreciation for people like these.
As believers we must submit ourselves one to another to promote unity and sense of purpose. Find good men of standing and add to the work they are doing for ADONAI, just as the three mentioned left their homes and aid Sha’ul in what he was called to do. It is when we come together that the Ruach can minister and others will know ADONAI intimately. Lord let me always serve You in what You would have me do and not what I want in my own jealous spirit. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
