We Are in This Together

James 5:13-16
God could have made just Adam and Eve but did He stop there?  No!!  So, why multiply, why continue to fill the earth with humans? After the flood, Noah and his family were all that was left. Did God say, we’re good now – do not multiply? No!! Why because God loves community, God loves seeing people together, God loves seeing people happy. When are we happy? When we are in community together we are living the real life that God intended. We are not to be alone and we are not meant to fight the spiritual battle alone. “Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.” (James 5:14) He didn’t say do it alone! “There was a man that was paralyzed (crippled). Some men carried him on a mat” (Luke 5:18-20) It wasn’t the paralyzed man that lowered himself down to see Jesus, it was four men and they all were blessed because of it. We are to be in community and share in the work of Christ, to be the hands and feet of Christ. Don’t fight it!  We are all here for a reason and that reason is to work together to accomplish God’s goals. God loves Ya;)
