All believers are travelers… walking the way of Jesus through a land that is not our home. The church is composed of those traveling companions who are walking with Jesus together with you.
Jesus promised that we would not walk alone. He is with us… indwelling us with his Spirit. He is also with us through the interactions and relationships with our traveling companions.
We never walk alone, even when we are alone. On the other hand, we are not created to walk by ourselves. “Just me and Jesus” may be the American way, but it is not the way of Christ.
We need our traveling companions, and they need us.
