Being Rooted in Community
Why do we continuously gather? Why do we meet up as Christians during college when we could be doing so many other things? We are called to be devoted to community! God has saved us individually and into a community! God’s presence dwelling IN us is mindblowing! Before the Holy Spirit came into us, the only place God resided was the temple.
The early church faced issues of: Racial tensions, Controversy over Circumcision, Idol Worship, False Teaching, Sexual Immorality, Lawsuits
If it’s possible for these early, messy churches to be in community, it’s possible for us too.
