We were not created to be alone.
Relationships are one of the most important things on this planet.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CULTIVATE COMMUNITY?
- We expand our capacity through collaboration.
- We begin to see a new side of ourselves as others see us.
- We are challenged and called higher.
- We see more reflections of who God is through every person.
But possibly the most powerful reason we need community, is because it’s one of our greatest opportunities to grow and look more like Jesus.
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.”
— JOHN 15:13 —
In order to carry out this verse and look more like Jesus…we have to have friends to lay down our life for.
There are so many things that God wants to do in your life that can only happen through the avenue of relationship.
Analyze where God has placed you right now and the different people you have in your life.
Then, begin to cultivate community by pursuing deeper relationships with them.
Remember, community reveals more of who God is to us and through us. This is why we need to continually pursue it in every season.
