Principle of Togetherness

Eccl. 4:9-12

1. Mutual Effort v 9

2. Mutual Support v 10

3. Mutual Encouragement v 11

4. Mutual Strength v 12

One couple in Scripture seem to epitomize this principle. Six times they are mentioned - always mentioned together never apart.

I. They Made Their Living Together Ac.

II. They Grew in the Word Together

III. They Ministered Together.

They made their living together, they grew in the Word together, and they ministered together.

Togetherness is a principle of God's Word. Ge. 2 18, "And the Lord God said, 'It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help - meet for him'."

Togetherness is God's design for husband and wife. The greatest blessing and joy and love and harmony in marriage comes when two people know Jesus Christ and surrender their lives to him so that His love can operate through them. Can your marriage be described by the word "togetherness"? Why not purpose in your hearts, to each other, and to God that you are going to work together -study God's Word in order to grow together and begin to minister together from this point forward?
