Don't Go It Alone


We all know people who think, "I don't need anybody." Satan knows how to go after the lone and solitary ones. We need to be involved in the lives of people around us.

I don’t have to tell you how many ways people’s lives fall apart. Sometimes the devil hassles and attacks you from the outside, and sometimes you have an amazing capacity to sabotage your own life.

God knew this, and that’s one of the reasons why he invented the church—so you would have a spiritual family. We are on a pilgrim journey, and being together is better than being alone. That’s why the Bible tells us, 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 10:25).

You and I know people who think, “I don’t need anybody. I don’t need to go to church. I don’t need any of this Bible stuff. I can handle my own life by myself.”

Just as wolf packs prey on solitary sheep, the bad news is that Satan knows how to go after the lone and solitary ones. It’s when you’re by yourself that you may start believing the lies he whispers that say you are no good and will never amount to much, that no one—and certainly no God—could ever love you.

That’s why you need to get involved in the lives of people around you. As pilgrims we need fellow travelers so we can all keep an eye on one another (Even the Lone Ranger had Tonto).
