And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24-25, NIV)

Good relationships are a huge part of our walk with God. Just because we choose to live for Christ does not mean that we will be walking on cloud 9 all the time. Sometimes life will get us down. Having people in your life to pull you up is an essential part of your walk. Fellowship with fellow Christians will keep you motivated even when things seem to be going terribly.

Prayer: Lord, I pray that you will continue to place people in our lives to help us stay on track and focused on our purpose. Also, lead us to others who may need extra encouragement. In Jesus name, amen.

And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. (Acts 2:42, Holy Bible, New King James)

This follows the scene of the magnitude conversion of 3,000 people in one day at the Jewish celebration of Pentecost. Apostle Peter had made it plain to those who witnessed the gift of the Holy Ghost falling on believers who had gathered in an upper room that this new covenant was the promise of Jesus.

The new converts were attentive to the apostles’ teaching and prayed together in steadfast fellowship. It kept them strong then. It will keep you strong now.

Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for those who teach and pray with likeminded believers who follow the apostles’ doctrine. Amen.
