Who are your “go to” people? What I mean is this – when you are facing a really tough and uncertain situation, who do you most want around you? Who do you want to sit with you, listen to you, talk with you, pray for you? They give you comfort and hope by their presence and prayers. We all need “go to” people.
As the Apostle Paul entered the city of Corinth in Ancient Greece for the third time he hoped that those who had vigorously opposed him, his Gospel, and his apostolic authority would have already repented of their hostility toward him. Yet, he was not sure. What comforted his heart as he entered Corinth was that he was surrounded by a group of his “go to” people. If everyone in that city and Christian fellowship was against him, these brothers would be for him! Let’s all make it a priority to connect meaningfully, like Paul and his friends, so we too will become and have “go to” guys and gals.
