For Part 3 we talked about the equation Connection + Mission = Community. The two points were experience God together and be on mission together. We see this realty again in another part of the Bible.
Colossians 3:16-17-Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.
True community forms when we spend time together and truly open our hearts. When we hear something like that our natural response is, "NO WAY HOSEA!" Opening your heart can be a scary thing, not knowing how others will react or treat you. However, true community can't be formed unless you open your heart.
In order to worship God together, truly, you have to open your heart. In order to counsel and encourage each other, you have to open your heart. To do everything in life as a representative of the Lord, you have to open your heart.
Take the risk. Open your heart. Have meaningful and spiritual conversations with each other. Encourage each other. Challenge each other. Fight the status quo.
