It is vital to belong to a community, more importantly, a Christian Community, where people have the same beliefs and share a common faith.
As God’s Children, we are advised not to forsake the fellowship and gathering of the community because we encourage and help ourselves, loving and caring for one another through prayer, good works, and providing for those in need.
Be sure you are part of a community where God’s love rains and rules, not among people who don’t work according to the word of God. We are many members in one body, the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, who died to save us. Let us have compassion toward one another and dwell in unity, for it pleases God.
These Bible Verses will inspire us to live as a community.
