Community is a dying art form in today’s culture. Do you intend to meet a friend next week and it does not happen for months? The culture we live in and work schedules that lead the day typically does not cultivate community. We need to be Kingdom-minded and lead our schedules to cultivate community.
This ministry is passionate about living in Christ-centered community. This is why we launched Intentional Discipleship Communities (IDCs) for you throughout the metroplex. If your priority is not living in community now, it probably never will be. Your today impacts your tomorrow. If you do not start living in community today, you probably never will because it will not be a habit:
“And let us consider how to spur one another on to love and good deeds. Let us not neglect meeting together, as some have made a habit, but let us encourage one another, and all the more as you seethe Day approaching (Hebrews 10:24-25).”
Trending today is not committing to times that community gathers. Why? Maybe the false fear that something better might come up. Maybe being exhausted from work. When tragedy occurs, community is key. Rest well and foster your community life. They’re there to carry your burdens:
“Carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the Law of Christ.” (Galatans 6:2)
Invite people YOU know “right were YOU live, work and play” to follow Jesus with YOU as you THRIVE in community!
