Christian Devotional – January 19, 2020

Day 19 – Fellowship. We need other believers. Read Nehemiah 4:15-20.

When our enemies heard that it was known to us, and that God had frustrated their plan, then all of us returned to the wall, each one to his work. From that day on, half of my servants carried on the work while half of them held the spears, the shields, the bows and the breastplates; and the captains were behind the whole house of Judah. Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens took their load with one hand doing the work and the other holding a weapon. As for the builders, each wore his sword girded at his side as he built, while the trumpeter stood near me. I said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “The work is great and extensive, and we are separated on the wall far from one another. At whatever place you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.”
Nehemiah 4:15‭-‬20 NASB

The enemies were still trying to frustrate their plans. So what did Nehemiah do? He got the people who were being obedient together and helped them learn how to work together and rely on one another as they continued to focus on Christ.

Are we busy getting together with other believers? Do we recognize the importance of getting together? Do we spend time with other believers and if so, how can we continue to come together as we will always be stronger in our obedience when we address working together.
