There was a man of olden days,
Who walked in the light,
But he felt something was missing,
Something was not right.
He knew he was a righteous man,
Walking in the Lord,
And he did not cling to things,
That was of this world.
He’d preached God in many places,
But when the crowds had left,
He felt a certain emptiness,
Although he did his best,
To walk in the Way,
And teach people what’s right,
Like how to love thy neighbor,
Put God first and the like.
He didn’t understand,
Just why he felt this way,
He dropped down on his knees and cried,
“Lord, have I gone astray?”
He searched and read the scriptures,
Thinking surely he would find,
A reason for this emptiness,
That he felt inside.
The next time he got up to preach,
He sadly said to them,
“I’m not fit to do this,
I think I’ve strayed in sin.”
“I feel empty inside,
And I don’t know why.”
And as he said this,
That poor man began to cry.
When the service was long over,
And he thought he was alone,
A man approached and asked him,
“Would you come to my home?”
The empty man accepted,
And when they got to that man’s house,
He was so welcomed that he was speechless,
Quiet as a mouse.
The head of the house said to him,
“Come fellowship with us.”
So he began to speak to them,
Of God’s unfailing love.
They prayed and they worshiped,
Until the morning came,
The empty man knew that his life,
Would never be the same.
The empty man (his name was Bran),
Had found something there,
His emptiness was gone,
Because of the fellowship he’d shared.
“It’s exactly what I have been missing!”
Exclaimed the man named Bran,
“After all this time of searching,
I finally understand.”
Bran found what he’d been lacking,
Fellowship with those,
Who are faith believing Christians,
Who love God heart, mind, and soul.
Fellowship with believers,
Is a very important thing,
It provides encouragement, and hope,
To anyone in need.
So if you’re at church on Sunday,
And somethings not quite right,
Invite someone into your home,
To fellowship tonight.
I’m sure you won’t regret,
Enjoying this time with the Lord,
And maybe there will come a day,
That God will open the door,
For the world to worship and fellowship,
In spirit and in truth,
All together in one accord,
And of the same mind too.
