A Storm is ComingConsider for a moment the following passages:

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Eternal life is in Christ Jesus.

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Romans 12:4-5

We are one body (united community) in Christ. The body of Christ and Christ are inseparable.

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. John 10:9

Salvation comes through the door that is Christ. He is the only way in.

Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. Luke 13:23-24

Salvation comes to those who strive to enter in. Seeking to enter is not enough.

Now, let me ask you: Are you striving to enter into the community that God has positioned around you? Do you know who they are? That community may be your family, your small group at church, your team at work, or your neighbors. It may be a combination or a blend of these; or some other form of community (He is very dynamic in this regard).

Striving to enter into your community is a strategic imperative in your (and their) entering into the kingdom of God. There is no entering without community. I believe, if you humbly ask God, He will help you find and invest in your community (this tool should help).

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you find the kingdom of God in community.

Humbly yours and forever His,
