Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another– and all the more as you see the Day approaching.(NIV)
While in the bank lobby yesterday, there were several young toddlers with their parents. I watched these children, strangers to each other, yet drawn to each other. It could be because they shared the same eye level, but as children they wanted to know each other, look and touch one another.
I watched them carefully, and I was reminded of a phrase that was told to me years ago. This particular person had mentioned that Jesus had no friends, so therefore as leaders in the Body of Christ we are to have no friends. At the time I was following along, but that did not last long. I am not sure if this person still practices this belief this day.
The Lord desires for us to assemble together. God made us to fellowship with one another. Did not the Lord tell Adam that it was not good for him to be alone?
When we are together in the Body, we uplift and encourage one another. We encourage our fellow brothers and sisters in their gifts, in their calling and by doing so they can press forward to fulfill the call of God upon their lives.
If you find yourself drawing away from people, that is not healthy and you could be falling into deception. Meet with other saints, with other fellow Christians and begin to build yourself up, all the more as you see the Day approaching.
May you be blessed in Him.
