Even though our spiritual walk ultimately is very personal and intimate, most of our walk was not designed to be done alone.
Walking the Path with encouragement and support from others, on the Path, is so important. The bible speaks of the importance of having a time of coming together in teaching, edification and worship.
The only thing the bible does not specify is where to come together. I believe the writers didn’t care as much care where we gathered just as long as we did.
Call a spiritual friend today. Find out if they would like to have a time of worship together at your kitchen table, in the park, on a nature trail, or at church. Maybe you are in prison or in the hospital and feel alone. You are NOT alone. Open your mouth and ask if someone would pray with you. If you have family that has been cast out or forgotten, offer them Jesus. They may need you as much as you need them.
Remember, where two or more are gathered in the name of Jesus, he is there in the mist of them. (Matthew 18:20).
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Encouragement and Warning
19 My friends, the blood of Jesus gives us courage to enter the most holy place 20 by a new way that leads to life! And this way takes us through the curtain that is Christ himself.
21 We have a great high priest who is in charge of God’s house. 22 So let’s come near God with pure hearts and a confidence that comes from having faith. Let’s keep our hearts pure, our consciences free from evil, and our bodies washed with clean water. 23 We must hold tightly to the hope that we say is ours. After all, we can trust the one who made the agreement with us. 24 We should keep on encouraging each other to be thoughtful and to do helpful things. 25 Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.
