"I got much joy and comfort over your love."—Philem. 7. 

?????

Early Christians received much support by encouraging one another and building one another up in love.

?????                                 

(1 Cor. 16:17, 18) "May YOU also keep submitting yourselves to persons of that kind and to everyone cooperating and laboring.17 But I rejoice over the presence* of Steph?a·nas and For·tu·na?tus and A·cha?i·cus, because they have made up for YOUR not being here. 18 For they have refreshed my spirit and YOURS. Therefore recognize men of that sort."

(Eph. 4:11, 12, 16) "And he gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelizers, some as shepherds and teachers, 12 with a view to the readjustment of the holy ones, for ministerial work, for the building up of the body of the Christ. From him all the body, by being harmoniously joined together and being made to cooperate through every joint that gives what is needed, according to the functioning of each respective member in due measure, makes for the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love."                                         When

Titus went to Corinth to minister to the brothers there, Paul wrote back to the congregation, saying: “His spirit has been refreshed by all of you.” (2 Cor. 7:13)

Likewise today, Jehovah’s Witnesses find genuine refreshment through upbuilding Christian fellowship. You know from experience that congregation meetings are a source of great joy. There we find an “interchange of encouragement . . . each one through the other’s faith.” (Rom. 1:12) Our Christian brothers and sisters are not mere passing acquaintances, superficial associates with whom we casually meet now and again. They are true friends, people we love and respect. We receive much joy and comfort by regularly assembling with them at our meetings.
