WE NEED COMMUNITY!

WE NEED COMMUNITY!

by Barbara Jean Shirley September 06, 2021

 

IN A WORLD WHERE WE CAN FEEL ISOLATED AND ALONE, GOD CREATED A LIVING COMMUNITY CALLED THE CHURCH. WE WERE NOT CREATED TO DO LIFE ALONE. LET’S LOOK BACK TO ONE OF JESUS’ FIRST ACTS OF MINISTRY... IN LUKE WE READ THAT AFTER A NIGHT OF PRAYER ON A MOUNTAIN, JESUS CALLS HIS FOLLOWERS TOGETHER AND CHOOSES TWELVE. IF YOU READ ON YOU SEE THAT THESE TWELVE DISCIPLES AND JESUS TRANSFORMED THE WORLD WITH SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. JESUS DIDN’T NEED ANY HELP. HE WAS CAPABLE OF DOING IT ALL BY HIMSELF BUT GOD’S PLAN WAS TO CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH COMMUNITY. THE TRUTH IS GOD CREATED US TO NEED EACH OTHER, AND THROUGHOUT JESUS MINISTRY HE MODELED AND TAUGHT THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY. GOD GAVE US EACH OTHER... LET’S WALK WITH EACH OTHER, ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER, AND HAVE GRACE FOR EACH OTHER.
