Spiritual Habits: Meeting Regularly
We develop spiritual fitness when we meet regularly and encourage one another. When you get together with other believers regularly, this is called fellowship -- sharing and caring together in a small group.
Do you ever need encouragement? Life can be tough, and we all get discouraged. The fact is you're never going to be an effective Christian if you try to go it alone. You need other people.
Snowflakes are frail, but if enough of them stick together they can stop traffic. You can't do a whole lot and I can't do a whole lot, but together in a group we can do something. We can have an impact on this world.
In fact, we need to be in constant contact with other Christians. You need more than just a "Sunday fix.' Every Christian needs a balance between large group celebration/worship and small group fellowship.
You need a big group, but you can't share prayer requests within a large group; you can't pray for each other; you can't even know everybody. So you need to be in a small group, also.
What's the result of getting together with other believers? "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV)
