Friending: One Community Away
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
"Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future!"
What Causes Relational Poverty?
1. Increased Mobility
2. Modern Conveniences
3. A Rise In Social Media
Our key thought for today is “You might be one Community away
from changing the course of your destiny!”
The Importance Of LIFE Groups In Community
- Where I find my community?
- 3,000 adults a day is leaving the church – didn’t connect.
Weren’t invited into a group to do life together.
- Acts 2:42-46
Three Qualities Of Great Communities
1. We All Have Regfrigerator Rights
Acts 2:44 All the believers were together and had everything in common.
2. We All Have Flawed Feet
Romans 15:7 Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you,
in order to bring praise to God.
3. We All Fight Lions
I Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
LIVE IT OUT
