Ecclesiastes 4:12 though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
A companion can offer assistance, comfort, and defense. Threefold cord. This proverbial saying is used by Preachers to clinch their cases about the value of friends.
We are as strong as our weakest link: this means the weakest part of a group.
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper.
Many years before Luke wrote about the fellowship of the early Christians (Acts 2:42-47), God inspired King Solomon to write about the importance of godly relationships.
As a Christian, your faith is personal, but it’s not private. God never intended for you and I to walk through this life alone. No matter what our situation may be, someone is willing and able to walk with us (you) through it.
I have experienced and seen this play out time and time again through my relationship with my wife. Through her grace and wisdom, I have learned how to respond with more discernment in difficult situations and how to pray fervently when I have felt like giving up. By organizing a small study group has strengthened our faith and confidence as Christians. I have learned that there is power and strength in “Godly Companionship.”
Brothers and sisters, utilize the people God has placed in your life. Never strive to “work” at life alone; live it with others under Christ’s headship. Anyone God brought into your life is for a purpose so don’t underestimate the person so that his or her purpose of being in your life will be fulfilled. You might be looking at the person as a problem, the person is there for a purpose.
Accept Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, today. Today is the day of salvation. Now is the accepted time. You may not really have tomorrow. Salvation is a free gift. Have a Blessed Day.
