For wherever two or three are gathered in my name, there I am with them also. Matthew 18: 20
You might be asking yourself “why do I need to go to meetings and be around others? Can’t I just do this on my own without anyone else?” Well, you can. But that would mean being outside of God’s design for us. God created us to be in community with one another. When we go outside of God’s design we start to have difficulties. It’s in the sharing of our struggles with others that we find healing.
The reasons for going to meetings are numerous as well as scriptural; accountability, brotherly love, support and seeing examples of victory over our struggles are just a few. Fellowship brings us into unity and belonging. When we are in community we come out of denial and isolation. God calls us to be in community with one another. God calls us to share in each others burdens.
“God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Cor. 12: 24-27

Father God, you designed each of us to be in community with one another. We were not built to live in isolation. Thank you for the people who are a part of my forever family. Thank you for placing each one of them in my life and me in theirs. Help me to understand just how precious every relationship is. I pray all this in your Son’s name, Jesus Christ.
