the bricks must be cemented together

Corrie Ten Boom once said, “Be united with other Christians.  A wall with loose bricks is not good.  The bricks must be cemented together.”

I learned that lesson the hard way as a rambunctious kindergartener who climbed a wall with loose bricks.  It was not good.  In fact, the wall collapsed and I broke my left leg.  Adding insult to injury (at least to a five-year-old boy), a neighbor girl had to carry me home.

Too many Christ-followers are too independent.  Their lives resemble a wall with loose bricks.  Decoratively speaking, the wall may appear to be OK.  With a little pressure, challenge, or storm, the wall collapses.
