Community is a requirement for the Christian life. The video above is of my daughter and her three friends getting baptized together–Emilie with Tristin and Cianna. Just look at how they look at each other when they see each other take this step of obedience in following Jesus. They are following Jesus as Jr. High girls and they are doing a better job of it since they have each other.
This past Sunday night we have a group of related small groups that met together to take communion–about 45 people in all. The worship was not polished and the setting was more like summer camp at the bonfire than a church. We heard one share of being healed of depression and the sweetness of the moment moved through all of us. This is community.
So, don’t do it alone. In fact, I cannot see anywhere where our Christian life can be lived alone. We need each other to follow Jesus! I love my small group, my church, my family and the brothers and sisters of Christ all over the nation that pray for me. Who do you have?
