Resorting Together

John 18:2 KJV
And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

There was a place where Jesus often went with His disciples. He went there frequently enough that Judas knew the spot. He went there, the Bible says, with His disciples.

We like to sing the old hymn, "I come to the garden alone…" It is certainly important that we have quiet time alone with the Lord.[1] But Christian living cannot be done in a vacuum.

I see an application for regular, predictable assembly in our local church. Resorting together with other disciples stirs spiritual growth. The cycle between regular quiet times with the Lord and frequent fellowship with the saints is dynamic; each depends and thrives upon the other.

[1] These “Daily Visits” I record are the result of regular, daily time spent one on one with Christ and His Word.
