Community is vital to life.
You can’t live your life to the fullest by yourself. Sure you can exist. Sure you can make it, but you won’t be able to live at your full capacity. To live your life to the fullest you need people in your life. On your own, you hit your ceiling quickly. When you allow other people into your life, you increase your capacity. Your time increases, so you can get more done. You increase your mental capacity and are able to think more clearly and more effectively. You increase your social/emotional capacity, and feel more alive and less alone. You experience growth in your spiritual life, and learn more about God and how to love people and be in community.
If you want to live your life to the fullest you need a group of people to do life with. You were not meant to do life alone. Let someone into your life. Let Jesus into your life. I promise that you’ll never want to go back.
When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. – Ephesians 3:14-19
