The Need for Fellowship

I don’t know about you, but I NEED fellowship.

I think that at times I have fooled myself into thinking I don’t.  But, I really do.

I need those who are going to grow me in my relationship with the Lord, those who will listen to what’s going on and give me advice that I sometimes don’t want to hear, those who will laugh at my cluelessness or brush off a thoughtless comment I made because they know what I said I didn’t mean the way it came out, those who will be there just to spend time with me and breathe life into me, those who remind me of my Lord just by the way they live their life.

Acts 2:42 talks about the early church:

42They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

There is a reason they were doing this!  It drew them together, unified them, and encouraged them in their faith.  I know that there is NOTHING like chatting about the Lord’s Words, breaking bread (cookies, chocolate…), and praying with those the Lord has gifted your life with.

So, to those who are my sisters in Christ (I won’t embarrass you cause you know who you are), no matter whether your family or friend…I cherish you more than you can know and praise our gracious Lord for your friendship.
