Daily devotional: We are meant to be in community

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

Observation
We Christ-followers were not meant to follow Christ individually in isolation from other believers. We are called to meet together regularly, encourage one another, and spur one another on toward love and good deeds. We cannot do that unless we are in genuine fellowship regularly with other believers.

Application
Go to church regularly, but not just to sit in a pew. Get to know other Christ-followers and share life with them regularly.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you for creating us not to live in isolation but rather wiring us for community, just as You are in intimate community with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Please help me to be with other believers that we can mutually encourage one another, and spur one another on towers love and good deeds. You are awesome and I love you and praise You!
