Topic: Enjoy Believer’s Companion [Tuesday, 18th July 2018]

…enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 2 Timothy 2:20

The people we spend quality time with have huge influence on the kind persons we will turn out to be. We all know what social influence is and how it shapes, not only our social life, but other levels of interaction. Social influence starts from the family down to other levels of social contact. While it is impossible not to come in contact with people who do not know the Lord and would want to influence us in a negative way, we must understand that the people we should spend quality time with are “those who call upon the Lord with a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:20).

The Bible never said we shouldn’t have engagements with those who are not believers. Jesus Christ spent time, and even ate with those considered as infidels, when He was on earth. But he had His companions, His disciples and it was with them He spent quality time. Being with believers like you brings joy to you, especially when you share God’s Word and pray together. It is something to cherish. It doesn’t just stop in studying and praying, it goes beyond that. They share in your dreams and aspirations, inspire you to achieve what the Lord has laid in your heart, no matter how daunting it might seem to the optical eyes.

When you enjoy something you want to have it all over again and again. This should be our experience. Enjoy the companionship of believers. Some believers would rather not relate with their fellow believers. No matter what the cause might be, it is not the right thing to do. Enjoy their company, set up meeting time outside the normal church meetings. Go out together to fun places, go to picnics, retreats, parks, conferences, etc, with your fellow believers. Remember, “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” (Hebrews 10:25).

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

Take time out of your busy schedule, during weekends, spend time with your fellow believers. Discuss about life in general, have some fun together. Study the word and pray together. Make it an enjoyable time that will make you want to keep doing it over and again.
