Because we do

All things together

All things improve

Even weather.

Our daily meat

And bread taste better

Trees greener,

Rain wetter.

I don’t make a habit of reading poetry, but I ran across this Paul Engle, short poem as I was glancing through a literature textbook recently. I don’t think I have ever read a better description of the whole purpose of Christian fellowship.

Many of us try to make it on our own, denying others the opportunity to help us. Many of us don’t think we can be of help to others. We can be helped and we can help – when we are together.

The Hebrew writer said, “Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, {20} by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, {21} and since we have a great priest over the house of God, {22} let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. {23} Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. {24} And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. {25} Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:19-25
