Godly living takes a village. If you want to grow more and more with God you have to grow deeper and deeper with God’s people. There are very few things that will influence the outcome of your life more than who you do life with. That said, you don’t have to come to church as the best version of yourself. Come broken and bruised, come with your problems, come with your insecurities. The church is meant to be a hospital, a place where you can heal. You are welcome as you are.
“concerning brotherly love you have no need…but increase more and more” 1 Thessalonians 4:9-10
Our job is not to judge someone but love them. We need community even more than we can imagine. It’s God’s desire for us to be known, held accountable and loved on.
The best place for you to start growing in your community is by serving. God wants you to find your sweet spot, He wants you to be doing the thing that makes you feel like you were born for this! That said, sometimes the best place to start is where you’re willing to do whatever is needed. It’s important to learn to be a part of a team. It’s not about what comes out of you but what is in you. We should always desire to grow more and more in community.
