"And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near” (Hebrews 10:25).

As human beings there are certain desires God has put in us, like the need for food and water. If that desire is not met, the body is starved of necessary nutrients for its survival. In fact, most of us would desperately look for such once we lack.

Equally important is the need for companionship. As human beings we are social creatures; whenever any of us is isolated from others something within us dies. Indeed the moment we are rejoined with others our spirits are revived. Yes, any of us can desire to be by themselves for a time, but not parmanently.

When the Apostle Paul urged believers not to ” neglect our meeting together” he was only making an obvious point. The brother or sister in Christ who has given up on meeting with the brethren is like a body denied of the basic needs for life. It is after all only through meeting and fellowshiping that our spirits are natured with believers testifying of what God is doing in their respective individual lives. Through regular fellowship believers also exercise the different gifts God has blessed each with for the edification of his church. Further, they also “encourage one another” through the sharing of their journey in Christ!

Today, as you start the week, look out for a fellowship where you will feed your spirit by hearing testimonies from other believers, for the growth of your new and abundant life in Christ.

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, within us you have placed the desire to meet and fellowship, and so I pray to be in that regular habit for my own good, this I pray in Jesus’s name!

    "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands” (Acts 17:24)

    When in his missionary journey the Apostle Paul ventured into the city of Athens he was struck by two things. First, the Athenians spent most of the day doing nothing but talking about the latest ideas (Acts 17:21). In spite of that they could not figure out who the great God is and his plan for their salvation.

    Secondly, Paul noticed Athens was filled with temples and statutes all over. In fact he came across one altar marked with an inscription to an “unknown god” (verse 23). The Athenians were a very religious people, searching God but with no idea of his plans for salvation through Jesus.
    The experience of Paul travelling through Athens could be the same with any of us visiting our modern cities. It is easy to find folks arguing about where truth can be found on social media almost all day. And then also one can find temples of all nature rising across the city. This is usually where they have assigned and restricted God as folks go about their lives.

    One thing Paul reminded the Athenians is that in spite of all their great arguments and temples the truth was actually not far from them. “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundary of their lands. God did this so that they should seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any of us” (Acts 17:27-28).

    Today, you may find yourself in a situation similar to that of the Athenians, where you are searching for the truth, yet it is so close to you. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me” (Revelation 3:20).

    Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray in the blessed name of Jesus, to know and share the truth of your salvation like Paul did for you are not far from any who truly desires to know you, this I pray in Jesus’ name!
