It’s true that everything we need for living by faith is found in Christ.
But that does not mean we should try to live the Christian life on our own.
There may be times when we don’t have much encouragement from others, and at those times Christ will give us all the grace we need.
But God wants us to be part of Christ’s body – which means being part of a community of believers who help each other live by faith, and to work together to bring others to faith.
