We’ve become a nation of lonely strangers. Who, aside from your family, knows your deepest needs?
Email. Internet. Video. Texting. Tablets. Smartphones. The list never ends, does it? As technology advances, real human connection becomes harder and harder. If we’re not careful, each new gadget can draw us further away from the family of believers God designed us to be.
If you want to experience a close community with other Christians, you must first escape the trap of superficiality and to develop tight bonds that will feed your soul and mature your spiritual family.
Our attitude towards one another must be gracious. There’s love when you’re gracious, there’s tenderness when you’re gracious.
Being involved means more than shaking hands with people on your way out of a church service—it’s investing in the lives of others.
What does it mean to be a good neighbour? Does it mean keeping your dogs from barking at night and lending your neighbour eggs when they run out? Or, is it a higher calling? Chuck Swindoll describes the biblical standard for neighbourly love in this message.
What are the essentials for evangelism? To see clearly and to feel deeply.
If we truly desire to grow deeper, pull together, and go further than skin-deep superficiality in our relationships, we must remove those things that hinder true community.
Authentic love is unconditional in its expression, unselfish in its motive, and unlimited in the benefits.
Marriage, as God intended it, is a mutual thing. It goes both ways—God never asks more of one than the other, though He asks the maximum of everyone.
Why are we so reluctant to share the Gospel? We hear so much about the need for evangelism but it doesn’t affect us if we don’t have a burden for the lost.
When we love and serve one another people take notice. Genuine kindness doesn’t fit the pattern and people have different reactions. Some push you away, but some are drawn closer to the Lord as a result.
