No Lone Rangers

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.

How Do We Do That?

Not all fellowship helps people live by faith.  Too much fellowship is just talking politics, or sports.

    Please pray daily that He will help me desire and see the truth in and accept this gladly every day of my life; that he will help me crush any resistance: I am completely undeserving, yet Jesus gives me all. That he will daily give me faith to hate sin and believe who He is and who I am, no matter how I feel
