Orchard






Lord, as a Christian,
am I just a single tree
struggling alone in me little plot?











You foresaw Orchards of fruit-bearing Christians















growing together,
nourished and disciplined
by thy loving care,
To more effectively feed
this spiritually starving world?






Thy church, O Lord,
Is that orchard of fruit-bearing Christians?





Then I shall plant my life there too.

Your post is a good reminder that the church is needed for fellowship. There is a movement today away from the church and toward individual paths to God, and while God probably won't reject anyone who seeks Him, He did clearly say in many ways that He wanted us to worship together.

I don't know what we would have done all these years without our church family! Such good thoughts.
