Together in Christ

"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." (Matthew 18:20)

This is a wonderful promise. Whether believers come together in church or a home Bible study or even just two together (like husband and wife) to fellowship around the name of the Lord Jesus, He is there also!

The Scriptures often speak of our togetherness with Him and therefore with one another. When we followed Him in baptism, we were "planted together in the likeness of his death" (Romans 6:5). Similarly, when He rose from the dead, God "hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:5-6). One day, we are told, "if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together" (Romans 8:17).

In our Christian walk right now, we are being "fitly framed together" as a "holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit" (Ephesians 2:21-22). We ought, therefore, to be "knit together in love" (Colossians 2:2), "perfectly joined together in the same mind" (1 Corinthians 1:10), and "striving together for the faith of the gospel" (Philippians 1:27).

Then one day, when Christ returns and the dead in Christ are raised, "we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:17).

So, when we are together with Him, through the indwelling Spirit of Christ, whether in a congregation of thousands, or just together with one or two Christian companions, we rejoice in His presence, for He is our mighty Creator, our loving Savior, our caring Comforter, our unerring Guide, and our soon-coming King.
