We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. Psalm 55:14
The church has the sweetest fellowship this side of Heaven. There are brothers and sisters who are loving, encouraging, and exhorting us as we serve alongside each other to the glory of God.
But suppose God took you out of that precious fellowship. What if you became so ill you had to be hospitalized with no visitors for days on end? What if you were transferred to Siberia and there wasn’t a Christian around for 250 miles? Or what if you decide not to smoke pot when all your friends are? Or decide to abstain from premarital sex? Or choose not to go drinking with your college buddies?
Is God enough when your dearest friend on earth forsakes or fails you? Is He enough of a friend that you can stand with Him alone? Corrie Ten Boom said, “You can never learn that Christ is all you need until Christ is all you have.”
God is enough, but you won’t realize it until you have begun to cultivate sweet fellowship with Him. How? Someone once said the best way to spell “relationship” is T-I-M-E. Spend time with your Savior in prayer and meditating on His Word.
