I came to the realisation again today how important it is to gather with other believers. We can truly inspire each other, because we each have our own unique story to tell. Sharing online like I am in this blog can potentially reach a large number of people at the same time, and that is great. But it is not the same as walking with somebody through the good times and the bad. It can just not have the same depth of impact on somebody’s life.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (WEBBE): 24Let’s consider how to provoke one another to love and good works, 25not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Getting together with other believers don’t necessarily mean a huge gathering of hundreds or even thousands of people. Jesus himself said when two or three are together in His Name, there He is too.
Matthew 18:19-20 (WEBBE): 19Again, assuredly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on earth concerning anything that they will ask, it will be done for them by my Father who is in heaven. 20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the middle of them.”
Find a community of believers, large or small, where you feel at home. One where you feel free to encourage others just as much as you will be encouraged by them. And then don’t forsake your assembling together, because you have a role that only you can fulfill!
