Matthew 18:20 – “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Christians Should Stick Together
Christians should stick together. We Christians should learn how to praise the Lord together in whatever ways we can think of. We can get a fuller view of who God is if we praise God together along with other Christians. It normally gives a fuller sense of joy if we praise God together with other Christians than if we do it by ourselves. Not that trying to find joy in God by ourselves doesn’t work. But it’s easier to find joy when an entire group is all trying to praise God.
Christians Are Like Coal
Christians are like coal. When a lump of coal is hot, it only gets hotter when you start placing more hot coal beside it. Whenever you separate a piece of coal from a huge pile that is red hot, it cools off quickly.
It works the same way with Christians. When we gather ourselves with other Christians who are also on fire for the Lord, we all burn much hotter together. There’s a reason why Paul really wants the church to be in unity. We are all supposed to come together with one mindset and praise God together.
But when we rejoice, our rejoicing is much more full if we do it along with other Christians. The love that we feel toward God will also be stronger. There’s a reason why Jesus said in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of them.” He wanted us to understand that when we’re with a group of people we can much more enjoy God and we will notice God’s power much more.
Find yourself a group of friends that are also on fire for Christ. This way when you are together, spiritual conversations will become normal. Regularly talk about God and spiritual things. You will find that your joy will grow and you’ll only burn hotter for the Lord. Always remember that Christians should stick together like coal and not get cold.
