The Christian life was never meant to be lived in isolation. Our American mindset values rugged individualism, but the Scriptures reveal to us something more beautiful. Have you ever considered a beautiful tapestry? All the varied colored yarn that came together to create that design.
Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (NIV84). The focus is on “we” the community of redeemed ones, coming together as His masterpiece. When we miss that, we miss what God designed us to be.
What do you think it is that makes us want to operate alone?
Who are some people around you that you could join with in the adventure of walking with Jesus?
