When we look at America, we think of freedom and diversity. God allowed for such greatness and expression in our country. However, I also see community. Revive America has a community of Christians who have come together in hope of spreading God’s word and changing the nation for the better. Here are some verses with references to the importance of community to encourage you.
1 Corinthians 1:10, “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
James 5:16, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
Proverbs 27:17, “ As irons sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Matthew 18:20, “ For when two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Romans 12:5, “so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10,”Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”
Together we are so much stronger! We should never feel alone. Not only do we have Christ to keep us strong, but we also have each other to fall back on when we need a hand or support.
