Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16 (NIV)
Isolation can really get you down. It is easy to lose your focus and succumb to negative emotions when you try to live all by yourself. Loneliness can eat away at you and undermine your spiritual growth. The good news is that you don’t have to be alone. You don’t have to isolate. You have everything you need in Christ and in the fellowship of other believers to live a fulfilling Spiritual life. Paul encourages us to let His word dwell in us and penetrate deep into our heart and soul. The word dwell is used to indicate something living in residence. Christ indwells us, and through the Holy Spirit and His word, desires to have a deep relationship with us. This relationship can be as real as any relationship we have ever had. Paul also encourages us to fellowship with others. The kind of fellowship where we teach, help, and admonish each other. Fellowship, where we nurture our faith through singing and worship. God established the church so we could have this kind of fellowship. Today make it a point to stop isolating yourself. Establish a deeper relationship with God. Reach out and find other believers that you can share and fellowship with. As you do, God will enrich your life.
Father, I desire to have a deeper relationship with You. I desire to enrich my life through fellowship with other Christians. Help me make this a priority in my life today. Please show me where to begin. In Jesus’ name.
