The Journey Toward Christ–Don’t Do It Alone!

October 26, 2016

“The journey toward Christ is intended to be a group expedition where we walk together as honest strugglers who believe the end point is worth any hardship. We share the life of Christ together and are called to nourish that life in one another; but we must also resist the urges of sin together. We must not be alone when we enter the death experience of discovering that our flesh-inspired strategies no longer work. During those times, connecting provides hope that there is life after death and gives us the courage to mortify the flesh, to further abandon our efforts to find life apart from Christ.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 99-100

Questions for Reflection:
• Have you experienced community’s role in helping you to resist sin?
• How has connection with fellow strugglers offered you hope that there is life after death to self?
• To whom can you provide the kind of connection that strengthens the desire to resist seeking life apart from Christ?
