The power of fellowship 2

Hebrews 10:23-25 (NLT): "Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 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."

After Sharon graduated from university and got a very good job, she became so busy that she no longer had much time for her fellowship with the Lord and with brethren. She didn't realize that this was draining her spiritually until she traveled with her family to the village for Christmas and found that she was now being afflicted in her dreams—something that used to happen to her when she was a little girl before she accepted the Lordship of Christ Jesus.

When she got back to the city, she determined that she was not going to continue to run after everything else but God. She started waiting on the Lord in prayer and fasting. She began having long prayers with her friends over the phone daily and became more serious about finding a church that upholds the truth of God's Word because the church she was attending in the city was just a "feel-good" church with very little spiritual substance. Most of her colleagues who were workers in that church were fornicators, and she knew this.

Many believers backslide when they change environments because they are not diligent in maintaining their spiritual disciplines, which may not fit into their new environment. Believers who continue to grow are those who value their Christian fellowship and fight to maintain it. Today, we are in an age of information technology—let's take advantage of it. With conference calls, it is easy to maintain fellowship and prayer meetings with your brethren (of the same spirit) even if you are far away from each other.

Go into today remembering that your company matters a lot. That's why God has commanded us not to neglect the fellowship of our brethren. Much life and power are generated when believers who love the Lord and each other gather together under His authority.

Prayer: Father Lord, please help me not to neglect the fellowship of my brethren. Strengthen me with might in the inner man by Your Spirit, in Jesus' name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
