Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 (NLT) “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”

Community is crucial to growth. Who you spend time with is determining whether or not you’re growing in your relationship with Jesus. When we’re in a good Christian community, we grow together, learn together, study the bible together, and pray for one another. One of the keys to lasting change is community.

We are so much better together. We can accomplish so much more together. God didn’t create us to live this life on our own. He created us to be in relationship with other people. God knows that we need encouragement, prayer, fun, laughter, empathy, love, and compassion. These can all be found in good, godly friendships. This doesn’t just mean finding good friends but also learning how to become a good friend. We need each other in order to grow in our relationship with Jesus.
