Not An Island

 

Yesterday, while sitting in church, something occured to me. What occured to me was something I'd already known and understood but somehow realized in a new way. It was this: there is nothing more beautiful and powerful and strong, this side of heaven, than a church gathered together in love. Not a particular congregation or denomination but the church at large, the international church. As humans, we were made for community. We were made to nurture close relationships and thrive in them. And in this thriving we learn how to love God and one another. If you're feeling frustrated, defeated, or perhaps lonely, make an effort to plug in to the church body. You will be encouraged and lifted up. And you'll understand once again that you are not alone. You are not an island.
