March 31, 2009 (Lev.2-3; Jn.21; Prov. 18; Colossians 1)

There is no such thing as “Lone Ranger Christianity”. God has not designed us to live a life of faith alone. That is why Proverbs 18:1 says, “Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.” In other words, if you isolate yourself you are a fool.
This is why it is hard to believe that a person is a genuine born again believer if he or she refuses to meet regularly with a local body of believers. Indeed one of the desires that comes along with our new hearts in conversion is a desire to want to fellowship and worship with other believers (see 1 John 2:19 for example). What other New Testament passages can you find that support this truth, namely, that we need one another in this walk of faith? And remember, even the Lone Ranger had his Tanto!
