This is a worship set, so listen to as much as you’d like. Enjoy the worship!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 ESV
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
One of the deep issues in the Church is a lack of fellowship. It’s as though we live in the adage: water water everywhere not a drop to drink. We are surrounded by people while simultaneously being alone. Our soul thirsts for fellowship but our flesh cries out isolation. We desire to be known and know others yet we hide everything about ourselves. This is one of the many reasons the church is losing people left and right. Our children, our adults, our elderly, all of us need fellowship and desire to be loved by one another.
I cannot express how many people I talk to daily that thirst for fellowship. So many people have issues that would be fixed if they simply had people they were growing alongside. They need someone that sees them and can tell they are lying when they say “I’m fine.” They need someone who can help them prevail against the evil one, remind them of truth when they are lying to themselves.
Christ prayed in John 17 that we may be one, in fellowship, in mind, in love…. we are called to be united and fellowship. That was how we were made. You’re struggling, you wish you had someone to lift you up, yet you’re still listening to your flesh lead you into isolation. Stop listening to the lie. Make a change today. Be intentional. Find someone who you can grow with.
Spend 1 minute thanking God you are a part of His Kingdom which provides fellowship. Then spend 2-3 minutes asking Him to lead you into how to fellowship.
Reach out to someone. If you need someone I am here, willing, and super passionate about fellowship with whoever needs it. You’ll see a little widget where we can chat on the website (anonymously if you’d like) and you can also email me: or message me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/DavidNKatherine). Seriously. Reach out to me. I am not here for a content dump where I can post things for you to read. I want to fellowship and get to know you so that you can share, question, and grow. That was Christ’s model.
P.s. unrelated but we have a page where we are studying through 1 John if you’d like to check out that Bible Study: https://www.grasslake.church/1-john/
