You can’t go it ALONE
I hear people all the time say that they don’t need to be a part of a church to be able to be a follower of Jesus. But there is a problem with that. All of the one another’s that Jesus talks about in the New Testament. Now I have to honest there are some people that think sitting in a booth at a restaurant is going to church. It is not going to church it is hanging out. We all need to be involved in a church body because the church body needs each of us.
Hebrews 10:25 (NLT) And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.
I think that unfortunately most people that say they don’t need to be a part of a church is because they were hurt. They were not what the verse says above “ENCOURAGED”. What are the things that we can be doing to encourage people? What are ways that people can see the church as something special, something as a place to be encouraged not discouraged?
