Community requires commitment!
“And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:18 (NLT)
When you look at the list of characteristics, it is obvious why genuine fellowship is so rare. But the benefits of sharing life together far outweigh the costs, and it prepares us for heaven.
Point to Ponder: Community requires commitment.
Verse to Remember: “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” 1 John 3:16 (NKJV)
Question to Consider: How can I help cultivate today the characteristics of real community in my small group and my church?
