Never overlook the power of community. Last week we had something called District Assembly, where a representative from all the Nazarene Churches gather together for discussion and decision making. It’s a great opportunity to reconnect with others that we haven’t seen in a while, and build relationships with others dealing with similar struggles and difficulties in their ministries. Gathering together each week for corporate worship can have a similar effect. We build relationships, share struggles, and come closer together and to God through each other.
Hebrews 10:24-25 says “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Can you be a Christian without going to church? Maybe, but you certainly won’t be growing as effectively in your faith trying to go through it alone.
I’ll see you Sunday!
