In a world where people feel isolated and alone, God created a unique and loving community called the Church. In fact, one of the first acts in Jesus’ ministry was to establish a community of believers, the disciples. These 13 men, including Jesus, transformed the world with the Good News of the kingdom of God. Throughout His ministry, Jesus modeled and taught about life in this new kind of community.

We were not created to do life or ministry alone. Community was God’s plan to change the world. Jesus was completely capable of preaching, teaching and healing by Himself. It’s not as if Jesus needed anyone to help Him! But God designed us to need each other, and Jesus lived this out by taking along 12 friends.

Being in a loving community helps us in many ways. We have friends to encourage us when we feel down, someone to help when we struggle with a problem, we learn to love as Jesus loved, it helps us stay committed to our Christian faith; it’s a place where we can be ourselves. Community also helps us stay obedient to God. Jesus commanded us to, “… love one another, just as I have loved you” (John 15:12 NAS). The only way to love others is to live in community.

There are many more benefits to being involved in a Christian community, but one of the best is that Jesus is uniquely present when we gather. And wherever Jesus is, is a good place to be!

Dear Lord, I praise You and thank You
for Your caring provision for all my needs.
Thank You for creating the Church to be
Your hands and feet to our hurting world.
I ask Your forgiveness for those times
I’ve neglected to show Your love.
Please help me be more loving
and to see needs that I can meet.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
