Humanity is meant for community and family, just like animals have others Adam the original human needed Eve because God saw that Adam would be stronger with a helper so would Eve. Even if God calls you to singleness outside of a marital relationship, God still wants you to be in community with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
The apostle Paul discerns the words of Jesus about marriage, that God doesn’t approve of divorce which was often misunderstood during a period of time where men would take advantage of what marriage stands for.
Jesus loves it when we gather which has been difficult during Covid-19 but it is still important to prioritize online community so we can come together and worship together. God himself is never alone being 3 in 1 person, being the source of everything.
God wants us to gather and support one another. As small groups are formed and bonds are built we are living out how God wants us to be in a relationship with each other. It is really important to have people in our lives that are there to support our spiritual needs.
Psychologists say that it is impossible to be in a community with more than 150 people at any given time. This may not sound like a big number, but some of us may have thousands of people on Facebook who we care about but just aren’t able to keep up a relationship with. For many of us, 150 people don’t even account for 50% of our high school’s graduating class.
How do you maintain and love our inner circle and not take them for granted? How can you focus on who God wants your scope to be in terms of who your pour into?
The answer’s to these questions will lead you to be a better servant for God.
Genesis2:18- The Lord said it is not good for man to be alone, I will make a helper for him. (God always said when he created stuff that it was good, but when he created man he said it was very good, emphasizing his plans for humans).
