Habits/Streaks: Community and Discipleship
This week we conclude our Streaks series by being reminded, because I think we all know this, that we are not meant to do our faith journey alone.
We are born to belong.
We are created for community.
And whether we admit it to ourselves or not, we spend our whole lives trying to fit in, get in, and stay in. It almost doesn’t even matter what “in” is; we just want to belong somewhere.
Romans 12:5 (NIV) reminds us that in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
In a healthy-functioning community of disciples of Jesus we are deeply connected to one another, and when something happens, good or bad, the instinctive response is to rally around one another.
We will also be reminded that community is not only how we impact each other, but how we impact the world.
