Christians need to practice individual and corporate disciplines to experience spiritual growth.

Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. 12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. 1 John 4:11-12

We best experience God’s love by loving one another.

Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. 15 Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. 16 He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Eph 4:14-16

 We are best when we are one.

 How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony! Psalm 133:1

We need the support of others to live a godly life.

 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Heb 10:24-25

 

We show the world Jesus when we love each other.

 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:35

We are Life Connection Church.

If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad.  27 All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it. 1 Cor 12:26-27

We need more than a weekly sermon.

We need more than private prayer and Bible study.

We need to be known, served, loved, and celebrated.

Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. Phil 2:4

Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Rom 12:15

Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet 4:8

 

The only way to obey the “one anothers” of Scripture  is to gather with one another.
