Day 15 – Consort

Etymology – (early 15c., “partner” (a sense now obsolete), from Old French consort “colleague, partner,” consorte “wife” (14c.), from Latin consortem (nominative consors) “partner, comrade; brother, sister,” in Medieval Latin, “a wife,” noun use of adjective meaning “having the same lot, of the same fortune,” from assimilated form of com “with, together” (see con-) + sors “a share, lot” (from PIE root *ser- (2) “to line up”).

Sense of “husband or wife” (“partner in marriage”) is from 1630s in English. A prince consort (1837) is a prince who is the husband of a queen but himself has no royal authority (the most notable being Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, husband of Queen Victoria; the initial proposal in Parliament in 1840 was to call him king-consort); queen consort is attested from 1667. Related: Consortial.)

1 Corinthians 3:9

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.

Selah – Ponder the privilege of being God’s fellow workers or His “partners” in the Kingdom of Heaven.  How amazing it is to be adopted into the family of God that continues to grow and change on a daily basis. “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”
Wisdom Nugget – To consort as co-workers or partners with God is a divine and awesome partnership that brings purpose and significance to our journey together.  To partner with God and each other here on the earth together,  is such an amazing privilege to have together.
