Read Acts 2:42-47
As an introvert who is energized by time spent alone, I find it difficult to be proactive when it comes to getting involved in community. As time has passed, I’ve found that my growing understanding of the importance of being in community has allowed me to become more proactive. But there was certainly a time I avoided getting too involved with any type of group setting. Throughout middle school and high school, I remember going to youth groups every once in a while. I did not attend consistently and, when I did attend, I feared being lonely. Yet, I dreaded any sort of small group connection. I didn’t realize at the time how beneficial a Grace Group could have been for me and my relationship with Christ!
The Bible is clear that community among believers is a part of the full life God has for us. At the very start of the Christian church recorded in Acts 2:42, we learn that the believers were devoted to fellowship. They met together, prayed together, worshipped together, shared everything they had, and just enjoyed one another’s presence. Acts 2:47 says, “And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.” God moves in big ways when we are united as a group of believers. What an incredible example this is for us today!
In Grace Students, we encourage every student to be a part of a Grace Group because we believe life is better together! Getting involved in a group provides a student with a consistent, life-giving community centered around God’s Word. I believe this applies to all ages of people. In groups, we grow closer to God and to each other, all while taking our next steps with Jesus. Being involved allows us to experience community the way God intends for it to be.
If you aren’t yet part of a Grace Group, my encouragement to you is to take your next step and get plugged into one!
