FF40 – Day 22 on Community | From Amy Coles


John 15:12-15 | Acts 2:42-47 | Romans 12:16

The word “Koinonia” is used to describe “community” in the Greek New
Testament. It is defined as “intimate participation” with others.

We were not created to do life alone. We were all designed by God to need
and be in fellowship with one another.

How exciting is that?!?!?!

College is a time to discover new things, to stretch your minds and to live
among others that may or may not look like you, talk like you, or share your
same passions.

Allow yourself to fully embrace this place that you will call home for the next
few years.

Work together with your peers, your faculty and staff to create a “Koinonia”
of intimate participation in everything you do.

Live in harmony with one another… (Romans 12:16)

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. (John 15:16)

This is meant to be an exciting and life changing season, so don’t let a single
opportunity pass you by. I encourage you to look outside of yourself each
day – introduce yourself to someone new, invite that person sitting alone
in the dining hall to sit with you, be alert so you can serve those in need.

Choose to be a community trendsetter at Belmont University.

It is my prayer that you, as a new student, will actively seek out opportunities to
get involved and find your place within this one of a kind Belmont community.
