Yesterday when we were at church the verse (that I CANNOT find for the life of me) that talks about the importance of regularly surrounding yourself with believers came to mind. I have always known of this verse but never really understood the significance of it. During service yesterday my eyes were opened to the power of that verse.
Don't get me wrong, one on one time with the big guy is very important, just like studying for an exam after class is essential to do well on the exam. BUT would you do well on the exam if the teacher didnt teach you the new material? There are aspects of being in a group of believers that you can't obtain on your own. Fellow believers can empower you, send you in the right direction, open your eyes to things otherwise unseen, etc. Plus what is stronger than an encouraging word?
I encourage you to surround yourself with fellow believers that will help you become better in your walk with the Lord. And.... SMILE of this happy thursday! :)
