Come Together

Hebrews 10:15 (NLT) “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.


I’ve often heard people say that you don’t have to go to church to be a Christian.  I’ve even said that myself in the past. While that is a true statement we miss so much by not being part of a larger community. 

As an introvert I am recharged when I’m alone.  I find it very draining to be even with a small group of people.  There is a huge appeal to be a solo-christian.  Other things like no gossip, no personality conflicts (I get along with my self pretty good) are what draw me away from other people and become more inward.  I tried that for a while my self.  It didn’t work out too well.  I became very stagnant and disconnected from God in that time. 

Over the years I’ve learned what being part of a community of faith can do for you.  I’ve grown leaps and bounds in that time.  I’ve become a leader in my church and with that is lots of interaction with people.  It’s been great having a group of people around me, encouraging me and stretching me.  It’s also been amazing to be that for other people.  I get to be apart of other people’s growth and development. 

So what keeps you part of a community of faith?  What’s keeping you from one?
