We were meant to live in relationship with others. We were meant to be part of a community.
In Christian community, we are strengthened by other believers. We are given accountability by other believers. Being part of a community not only holds us accountable for the things we shouldn’t do, but it holds us accountable to become all that we are meant to be.
The Bible says that we should live a life that is worthy of the calling that we have received. A good community calls you to this level and holds you to this standard. They see who you were meant to be, they don't trip over who you are not, and they call you into the destiny that you were always meant to have.
We are stronger in numbers. The wolf loves the lone sheep, so we stay in the fold, we cover each other, we pray for each other. Being part of a community is a powerful tool.
