Is About Living in Deeply Connected Relationships

Scripture: Colossians 2:1-5
Scripture Memory:  Galatians 6:2

 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
Journey: People who teach the Bible and seek to help others understand what it means to live like Christ often find themselves confronted with a dilemma. The people they’re trying to help often have a real confidence in God. They often want to please Him and obey his word. But sometimes it is true that these same people are handicapped in their  growth in life because they have bought into ideas that on the surface sound Christian, but are in fact false. So part of the challenge of helping others grow is debunking these “myths” about the Christian life.

One of these myths goes like this: “If I have God, I don’t need people. If I really depend on God, I don’t need to depend on others. People disappoint us, people fail us, but God never fails us, so we should look to God and not to others to meet our needs.”

That may sound good, and as with most Christian myths there is a kernel of truth in it, but it’s a lie. It is a boldfaced, community damaging, life crippling lie. Why? Come along for our Journey in the Word today and we’ll see why – together.  

Hoping for your courage, 

Will (for the pastors)
