A fool has no delight in understanding, but in expressing his own heart.”
I remember thinking that I didn’t need to go to church; there was a time when anyone who wondered asked me what church I belong to, and I would say that I didn’t go to church, but I read the Bible, and that’s all I needed.
Praise God for how He works in us. Now that I think of it, by that statement alone, I demonstrated how much of a fool I was to be deceived to be content with what I knew, and man, was I arrogant to express it.
God knows what’s best for us, and He corrects us in His great and sure ways. Today, I say it is true that avoiding fellowship with other believers leads to stagnation, and then eventual degradation and decay of our spiritual life.
Today, I say that fellowship is necessary for a believer to flourish as he is supposed to. We are all parts of a body, and we encourage and sustain each other through the love that we share – the love that we have from God through Jesus Christ. Consider His example when He lived as one of us here – He didn’t decide to isolate Himself and just to spring out to be crucified. He didn’t live as a hermit. He went out and talked to people, listening to them, and drawing them closer through His grace and wisdom.
By God’s grace and love, I am here to listen.
To God be all the glory and praise.
