We were MADE for community.
Every single one of us is made in the image of God—a God who has forever existed as Father, Son, and Spirit—one divine community with three divine persons in it—Father, Son, and Spirit always loving each other, delighting in each other, and glorifying each other. We were made in the image of that same triune God. The implications of this are many and profound, but one thing is for certain: life is not meant to be lived alone. We human beings were created for community. We need each other. We need fellowship.
We WERE SAVED FOR COMMUNITY.
When we put our faith/trust in Jesus, God adopts us into His family. It is a big family with lots of diverse people in it. It is in this large, extended family called "the Church" that God mediates His care for us even as we learn how to better love Him, others, and this world.
