So, I have this bad habit of doing posts daily for a good bit and then just sort of falling off the face of the planet...mostly because I can suffer from some serious writer's block. But! I am not going to let that stop me this time! So keep checking back!
One of the next posts I hope to put up soon is about living in community with other believers.
I am going through the book of Ephesians right now and after reading 1:16, "I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers," I felt like the Lord had given me a new challenge in how I treat my friends. Not that I see myself as a bad friend and I have not been told that by any of my friends, but it got me thinking about how intentional am I really with my friends? Do I really care about them as I say that I do?
Am I encouraging them in this crazy life that we live?
Do I strive to push them towards Christ or do I lead them away from Him?
And what does this look like anyway??
How in the heck am I supposed to encourage my friends when I am feeling discouraged !?
Why is community hard? And why do we need to make it a priority?
