I am all the more convinced that Sunday messages or any sermon we hear are just like getting directions for our journey. The real journey takes place in our homes, our workplaces and every other place where we deal with other people and have a chance to examine our hearts. Every place where we rub our shoulders with others strongly are making us either persevere in godliness or making us fall into self pity and despair. Our hearts can be shaped only by our responses to the bumps from the lives of others. What is most amazing is that this kind of interactions are the most effective when it comes to our brothers and sisters in Christ. God has ordained that brotherly kindness be one of the most important pursuits to have in life and to avoid fellowship is keeping ourselves away from the one of the greatest means of God dealing with our hearts.
