Everyone feels lonely at times. In fact, loneliness began in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve, a married couple, experienced separation from God and each other. Sin's entrance into the world created loneliness. The remedy, says Jayne V. Clark, is not what fills the void, but Who fills the void.
Clark helps us to understand that our union with Christ leads to our union with one another. Believers are a family, the bride of Christ, and, just like siblings and spouses, we have the power to impact our own loneliness and to lessen or intensify the loneliness of others.
