This past week there was a flurry of activities taking place at the building where First Baptist Church meets: worship, instruction, service, and outreach. It was a beautiful thing to watch those of all ages working together to see Jesus honored and glorified. We are definitely better together! I imagine that this is one of the reasons why the Lord admonishes His Church, to “not forsake the assembling of ourselves together.” Hebrews 10:25 We need each other, maybe now more than at any other time. The enemy is working overtime to distract and divide us, as he understands how much more we, the church, can accomplish together.


Therefore, may we pick up the baton of those who have gone before us, and run with endurance the race that has been set out before us. Heeding the wisdom in Ecclesiastes, “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. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 The Bible poignantly points out the benefits of standing together. Do any of these resonate in your heart? Being more effective; encouragement for when you fall; energy to stand the pressures in this life; and withstanding temptations, our flesh, or the attacks from the evil one. 


God has provided His family to be His hands and feet to carry out His purposes here on the planet. We are better together. Won’t you make sure you thank Him for His provision for us, and be available to be used by His Spirit to carry out His mission! May we rejoice, the LORD has come!
