Fellowship in loneliness

Fellowship in loneliness
Matthew 28:20 (NKJV)

teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Different types of loneliness invade our lives. Standing at the grave of a loved one, we feel the pangs of separation. When there are no messages on our phones, we long to hear the voice of someone who cares.

Whether your a Pastor, ministry leader, spouse, parent, or child, you have likely experienced loneliness somewhere along life’s journey.

Fellowship in loneliness

If you ache with loneliness, remember the you’re in good company. The Bible gives abundant examples of lonely saints.

Even the apostle Paul, an incredibly gifted and blessed man, was not immune to loneliness. He was taken to heaven and shown things too wonderful to share with earthly beings. He authored much of the New Testament and founded all of the missionary churches during New Testament times. But on occasions, he ached with loneliness.  At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them. 2 Timothy 4:16 (NKJV)

Today you may encounter a lonely person hiding behind a smile. If you were that person, how would you hope to be greeted? Friendship is a sure antidote to a lonely soul. Be cheerful medicine to someone today.
