It is No Good to be Alone
Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him." Genesis 2:18
We all know that God made Eve to be the helper that Adam needed because it was no good for him to be alone. God knew that he needed help and by making a woman that would be just right for him. Together they would become one and reproduce.
God made all of us to follow Him and come together as one so that we would have unity. We weren't made to be alone and it is very important to develop good relationships. I hope you consider your circle of friends to be wise. It really makes a difference because we become like the five people we are closest to. They will rub off on us whether it is negative or positive. I am not necessarily saying stay away from the negative people, but we should surround ourselves with positivity. We should walk with the wise.
Fellowship is very important and it includes people who have the same interest as us. We all want to do our best to be like Jesus and our friends within this group will hold us accountable. We lift each other up when needed and support each other when faced with a difficult situation. We share the Word of God and talk about what we are learning. We have a connection with our brothers and sisters in Christ and even if we are only with them a season the bond remains the same and the love is still just as strong knowing we had to go our separate ways.
When we pray for one another and stand in agreement we know this to be true. "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20 (KJV) His power is at work and we have testimonies to tell of His good works. His mighty hands still perform miracles today.
When we go out to tell of the Good News we don't do this alone. Then Jesus went from village to village, teaching, the people. And he called his twelve disciples together and began sending them out two by two, giving them the authority to cast out evil spirits. Mark 6:6-7 We certainly don't want to take a chance of being overtaken by impure spirits!
God knew we would all need the help of others to make it through this life. Don't try to go through life secluding yourself from others. Reach out to those who will help you through and reach out to those who need your help. This is an action called love and we all need to be there for one another.
