Nathaniel Hawthorne made a worthwhile point in The Scarlet Letter. Being with people unlike ourselves broadens experience not otherwise gained. That’s similar to the encouragement Fox Conner gave a young Dwight Eisenhower. In associating with people above him mentally and emotionally he would grow beyond his personal experiences.
That philosophy applies to Christian fellowship, but from a different perspective. While believers share a common faith in the Savior, each processes Bible knowledge and personal experience at varying speeds. However, when weaker Christians regularly associate with stronger Christians, an amazing spiritual synergism results. While even the strongest Christian can be defeated singly, and the weaker more easily and oftener, we together become redoubtably strong in spiritual warfare, whether in single encounters protracted campaigns.
Christians, seek worship, fellowship, study or evangelistic opportunities. Whatever your level of faith or spiritual courage, by your very presence you add to the spiritual synergy that empowers all of God’s people!
