No matter how tough you are, no matter how independent or self-reliant you are, and no matter how much you pride yourself in the belief that you don’t need anyone, it just is not true.
You and I cannot do life alone. Even in the perfect Garden of Eden, God said to Adam, “it’s not good for you to be alone.” We were created to be in community. We were designed to need and want other people. Life is meant to be shared and experienced with others. There is strength in numbers.
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 says, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” We need each other!
Going to church is obviously essential and even commanded, but you worship in a crowd and fellowship in a small group. That smaller group is what you need. You need a place to share your hurts, pain and problems. You need other people to pray with you, encourage you and hold you accountable.
We have many opportunities coming up at New Season to allow you to connect with other people. Take advantage and get involved!
