24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 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. - Hebrews 10:25 [NLT]
Our relationship with God is not only kept strong by meeting with Him through prayer and Bible reading, but also by meeting with other Christians. Our fellowship with other Christians through prayer, Bible study, encouragement, doing activities and countless other things is a key factor in keeping our relationship with God vibrant and strong.
Fellowship with other Christians is also important not only for our relationship with God, but also with our Christian path.
1 Peter 5:8 [NLT] tell us, "Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour."
This verse of scripture speaks the truth! The devil is ALWAYS trying to find ways to make us stumble. If we have other Christians around us helping us through prayer and encouragement it's a wonderful thing for us so that we feel confident in that we have power and strength on our side through God.
Sometimes it's hard to be around others when we're going through a tough time. Sometimes it's hard if we're just having one of those days. We can always reach out to a fellow sister or brother in Christ to help us through a rough patch or if we feel vulnerable. Never be afraid to reach out because God sent wonderful Christians to help us and He wants us to reach out.
