30 Mar A Simple Test for Community.
The goal of community with Jesus and His disciples was not to just gather, study the scriptures and leave. It was family with a focus. Friendship with a purpose. It is all about life on life discipleship.
Here is a scale and simple test:
You do Not have community: If you miss church and no one notices, so no one calls you to see why you missed.
You might have Good community: If you miss church and people notice, and you get phone calls after church wanting to know where you where.
You might have Great community: When everyone knows why you where not going to be there a head of time because they do life with you daily and know what is going on in your life.
