After the lecture, it was time for fellowship, a new word for me, but I became a quick learner of what it meant. I asked a believer if they were always like this, “like what?” he replied.
“Friendly and sincere,” I replied.
“We truly love the Lord which allows us to love one another, because we know that the world is a cold and a lonely place. We can overlook our faults and see that each person in this room has been ransomed for a high price,” he said.
“I want to know more about this ransom and high price,” I asked, “because if your Lord has this much influence and can bring you to this kind of level of love for one another, then I think I need that too,” I said. If he only new how much I needed a sincere friend right then.
“We’ll keep having meetings and you keep coming and you’ll meet our Lord soon enough to experience his everlasting love. In the meantime here’s my number and call me, if you need to talk,” he said.
As I drove home from my first Bible study, I was taken-back by the idea that “I” attended a religious meeting, and I became concerned that I would become one of “them”, but upon opening the door to my home, I was greeted with the reality that my life was stale and superficial. I lacked substance as a person. I needed to become one of them.
