The gathered church is not a spectator or passive experience. It is active participation in what Jesus describes as the Body of Christ. It is the relationship between Christ and his Bride, the church. Relationships are crucial. In the end the only thing you exit this life with is relationships, good or bad. The most important is your relationship with God through Christ, and then the enriched relationships we find with others in Christ.
Consider the scriptures here: “24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24, 25, NASB.
“17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17, NASB.
You are responsible to actively seek accountable and encouraging relationships in Christ. There will come a time you will need a friend and the support that is offered through real friendships in Christ. You prepare for that day by connecting now.
