It Takes Two [Romans 15:1-6]
There is a good reason the Creator made things in pairs, including man. Two are better than one. This is true for all things. It is especially true for our walk of faith. Our journey in the Kingdom is not marked out to be on a solitary path. We need one another in order to remain steadfast in the faith.
We are encouraged to join in the fellowship of the brethren as often as possible (Heb. 10:25). Apostle Paul revelled in joining the brethren to fellowship because of the mutual benefit there is to gain (Rom. 1:11-12). The devil can easily prey upon us when he is able to isolate us from the brethren.
We must therefore endeavour to remain connected. The early church had regular meetings (Acts 2:42). Meetings must not necessarily be about conventional “church activities”; sometimes, surrounding ourselves with one or two believers might suffice.
As often us we can, let’s give ourselves to the company of believers that we might be edified and remain strong in the faith.
Identify something you can do to edify others in the gathering of the saints or one-on-one interactions between you and others.
Dear Father, please help me to overcome any setbacks that keep me away from the gathering of the brethren?
“For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you, brother.” [Prov. 27:17, nkjv]
