“Jesus never intended that the enjoyment of his presence would replace the enjoyment of the presence of Christian friends.”
I feel encouraged and validated by this in my current quest for biblical community. I spent much of the past year trying to convince myself that if I were truly satisfied in Christ and if He were truly my all, that I would be fine in my alone-ness. I am so foolish sometimes. Thankful that if anyone lacks wisdom he should ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him (James 1:5).
