Davidisms: We Are Saved by Grace Alone, but We Are Never Intended to Be Alone
Community. Fellowship. Family. God created us to belong. It’s a human yearning we all have deep in our souls. Belonging.
This principle holds true from the beginning of time. God created Eve so that Adam would not be alone (Genesis 2:18). Beginning in the garden of Eden - and true to this day - humans are intended to live life together.
Especially followers of Christ. We’re commanded to do so.
There are many reasons for the intentional gathering of believers. As the Church, we are commanded to not forsake the gathering together of believers (Hebrews 10:25). Covid or not. Mask policy or not.
Scripture is clear, “Two are better than one” (Ecclesiastes 4:9). And while it’s a popular slogan in today’s culture, God was the original author of “Better together.”
If you haven’t already, create community in your personal life. Find a prayer partner. For where two or more are gathered together, there is the presence - and power - of Jesus (Matthew 18:19).
Commit to weekly church attendance. Gather regularly with other believers - especially for prayer.
Yes, you were saved by grace alone (Ephesians 2:8-9). But God never intended for you to go through life alone.
