You Need Friends

"That I may come to you with joy by the will of God, and may be refreshed together with you"(Romans 15:32). You need friends who refresh you. There is joy when you gather with them. You need to be refreshed with Christian fellowship. You are a member of the same body, the body of Christ. We need one another. The Christian life was never intended to be lived as a "lone ranger." It's the will of God that you find strength from him, and that often comes through Christian friends.

Do you have a support group of Christian friends? It may be a Bible study group or a prayer group. It may be fellowship with friends from your local church. Don't cut yourself off from the fellowship of other believers. Be a part of a group that refreshes you. Pray that God will use you to refresh others.

God our Father sends people into your life to refresh you and help you. Also, God wants to use you to refresh others. They especially need your support in the time of need. All believers are members of the body of Christ. The body works together to support and refresh one another.

Be aware of people that God has brought into your life to refresh and support you. Ask God to use you to encourage and support others. Look for God to bring new people into your life. They are those you need to refresh, and others are those who refresh you.
