Church Community

I've been thinking a lot about the concept of community.  Tonight I spent the evening at the assisted living facility where I volunteer.  They call themselves family. They do spend more time with each other than with their biological family members.  I'm glad to be a part of it.  But there is a significant lack of a deep fellowship.  We don't pray with one another.  We don't encourage one another with God's truth.  We don't hold each other accountable.  We don't do any of the one anothers mentioned in the Scripture.  You'll find that only among the community of Christian believers.

God intends for us to be in unity if we know the Savior. He wants us to obey the one another commands.  We should be known by our love for one another.  Satan loves to brind disharmony and disunity.  He particularly loves it in a local church.  That's why we must fight against anything that ends in discord. We need to be quick to forgive and quick to restore the peace.  Praise God for His body.
