Who Are You Comfortable Around?  

NOVEMBER 6 & 7, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Romans 1:12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    “Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name…. And they’re always glad you came…” These were the first two lines of the opening song of a TV sitcom in the mid 80’s to 90’s. It centered around a local bar people seemed to gather at because everyone there made them feel welcome. These people just wanted to be around other people who were just like them.

    Nothing has really changed. People just want to feel accepted and loved. They want to know there are others like them, with hurts and trials in life. They want someone to care about what happens to them. People want to be around other people who are just like them.

    Why did Paul say he wanted to be around the church to which he was writing? He tells us, it was to find COMFORT in the company of people, who believed like him. He was being cursed at, mistreated, imprisoned, laughed at, and rejected. He longed to be around someone who understood. Does that sound familiar? The world today will cuss at you, mistreat you, imprison you with all types of vices and habits, then laugh when you are hooked, and reject you for what you have become. Therefore, I like church. Those churchy people know how I feel. They too have been laughed at for their faith this week. Just like me they have felt they did not fit in somewhere because of what was going on there. These people understand me and love me for who I am, and who God is through me. Because they love me this way, I cannot help but love them back in the same way they love me. I love to go to church where they all know my name. It is wonderful to be welcomed by people each week who are just glad you came. I like to be around people like me.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    How about you? Where do you feel you fit best? Look around at the crowd you hang out with most often. What is the heart of your relationship with these people? Whatever you see in them, that is you! In the world, there are gangs, clubs, and social groups to try to help you fill this void. My friends are eternal. I will always get to hang out with them. What a comfort to know our Christian relationship is based on a REAL ETERNAL LOVE!

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead, we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
