Dr. David Jeremiah devotional (Turning Point)

Spiritual Tuning
We have turned, every one, to his own way.Isaiah 53:6
Recommended Reading1 Corinthians 1:10-17"Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshippers [meeting] together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become ‘unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship." These are the words of A. W. Tozer, who clearly understood the importance of fellowshipping with believers in order to keep our minds and hearts turned toward the Lord.
On our own, it is easy to become out of tune and start living a life that is in disagreement with God's standard. But when we surround ourselves with the body of in-tune believers, our ears are suddenly opened, and we hear our need for a spiritual tuning.
Keep yourself in tune with the Lord by staying in consistent fellowship with other believers.
There are many things which a person can do alone, but being a Christian is not one of them. As the Christian life is, above all things, a state of union with Christ and of union of His followers with one another, love of the brethren is inseparable from love of God.William T. Ham

So TRUE, SO True! Being alone in this war is never good. Being alone in this journey is never smart! God didn't create us to be alone but to be in relationship with him and those around us. I love being in the presence of other believers ... I always walk away thankful because God always shows up. Doing life together is great!
