There are people who believe in the Lord Jesus, but are not affiliated with the body of Christ. They always seem to have an excuse as to why they don’t associate with other believers. They’ll say the church is full of hypocrites, they’re too “fake,” or the pastor only wants our money. It’s obvious these excuses are demonic because they don’t make sense.

It’s interesting how we can easily go a job full of hypocrites and fake people, but some of us don’t associate with the church. It’s funny how we can go to concerts where the artist only wants our money, but if the pastor takes a second offering to build the Kingdom of God, some of us are offended.

God never intended for us to do life by ourselves. We should associate ourselves with other like-minded believers. We can be encouraged by hearing someone else’s testimony and we encourage someone else by telling them about the goodness of the Lord in our own lives. We can be blessed by other believers and we can be a blessing to someone else. Together, we can destroy the works of the devil.

Let’s renew our minds to understand there is power in coming together as one.

Hebrews 10:25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
