But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
Hebrews 3:13 (NIV)
God made us for fellowship. It is wired into our brain. We need God and other people. Relationships play a pivotal role in our Christianity. We must attune ourselves to God and to each other. If we don’t, then we isolate. And when we isolate, we start to ruminate on our inner thoughts with no checks or balance. What starts out as a hurt can fester into a deep wound if there is no one there to encourage us. Anger becomes revenge, sadness becomes despair, temptation become sins, all because we had no one to listen, to correct, to pray for us. Fellowship with our Lord and each other is crucial to our everyday life and it begins with us. We must choose not to isolate. We must choose to be someone else’s encourager. Today, find someone to encourage you and then go and encourage others.
Father, I confess I have fallen to the deceitfulness of sin because I have forsaken the encouragement of others. Help me not to isolate. Help me truly fellowship with other believers so I can be encouraged and then, help me encourage others.
