We’re All in This Together
Be Strong, Be Well — Friday, May 29
A phrase coined during this pandemic is, “We’re all in this together.” It’s a comforting thought. It’s one that helps us feel better about the struggles of being confined or quarantined because we’re all sharing the same experiences. We’re not alone.
“We’re all in this together” takes on a different perspective when we apply it to the church and how all Christians, together, are heavenward-bound. It is very uplifting to think of our journey here on earth as walking together with other Christians on the way to our eternal reward.
However, to be on the same path, each one of us needs to follow the same instructions. We need to be faithful to God’s word in every way. Collectively, we may be the church, the body of Christ, but we stand as individuals before God in how we act and what we practice. “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3).
In God's infinite wisdom, He designed it so being together in fellowship with Him, we are in fellowship with one another. “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
Satan's objective is to try to get us off by ourselves where we feel isolated and alienated. When we are without Christian friends to express care and concern, we will feel all alone. It’s at those moments we can become weak and vulnerable. At those moments temptations can become much stronger.
We need each other. If you are feeling alone, don’t let another moment pass by without reaching out to someone—a fellow Christian who can walk with you on your journey. For those who are in a good place, don’t let another moment go by without reaching out to someone who needs you—a fellow Christian you can help lift up on their spiritual journey.
“Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10; cf. Galatians 6:1-2).
How grateful we are for the companionship of brothers and sisters who walk with us toward heaven. If either one struggles or falls, we have help. —Chris
