This weekend we are continuing our series “Better Together’, as we look at growing together with each other.
Many people, I think, make the mistake of thinking that all they need to grow spiritually is God’s Word and prayer. But the truth is, we need people to help us grow.
There are many things God wants you to learn about life that you will never learn on your own. You will only learn them in community.
It is within this community that we need to ‘encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
We can do this in a number of ways, but we are called by God to be examples to one another of what growing together is like, and further, we are to be an example to our wider community, of what it is to be in true fellowship as a part of the Body of Christ.
We need to ensure that we are encouraging each other, teaching each other, warning each other, confessing to each other and forgiving each other in the same way that Christ has shown in example to us.
This will help us continue as a church to be ‘Better Together’
