Community: God’s Plan for Facing Tough Times

 

If there is one thing that can be surprising about this Christian life, it is the reality of the message that Jesus speaks and Paul repeats that “we must suffer many hardships to enter the Kingdom of God”.  (Acts 14:22)

Whether the challenges of being a Christian include brutal religious persecution, as the entire early church (including Paul) experienced, or whether those hardships are less violent, there is one thing for sure.  The closer we are following Jesus, the clearer we find our way challenging.

As we cry out to God, oftentimes we find help coming from an unlikely source: the community right around us.  And really the whole point is this– now is the time to invest in those relationships.

Many of us are going through some pretty tough things now.  Its a good time to strengthen the connections between us.  To reach out a hand and grow in our love and trust.

Come and join us on Sunday at 5 PM as we CONNECT in shared space at 5413 Blue Ridge Cutoff, and bring a message called “Community: God’s Plan for Facing Tough Times”.

Feel free to take a “sneak peek” at the Scripture passage for the week.
