“Sir, you wish to serve God and go to heaven? Remember you cannot serve him alone; you must therefore find companions or make them; the Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.” -John Wesley
Who are you doing life with? Who really knows you and is helping you carry your burdens? Who is praying for the specific things in your life that you’re facing right now (And who are you doing the same for)? These are all important and penetrating questions that every Christian needs to answer. John Wesley had it right when he said, “you cannot serve him alone” (although many Christians continue to do so).
If you don’t cultivate committed, Christ-centered relationships with a small group of others believers that really know you, care for you, and help to hold you accountable, chances are your spiritual growth has sputtered and stalled. It’s true, “the Bible knows nothing of solitary religion”, this also goes for pastors too (maybe even more so).
If you’d like to learn more about what the Bible says about the importance of committed Christ-centered relationship make sure to join us at VALLEY Christian Church tomorrow (Sun. 9/9) and 9 or 11am as we continue our CommUNITY series.
