You have needs in your life and no one to meet them. You have hurt to share and no one to listen to you. You have love to give and no one to receive it.

Find Your People.

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

The church isn’t a building you go to but a family you belong to.

Matthew 5:46-47 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?

Serve one another.

Show hospitality to one another. Care for one another.

Encourage one another.

Go one another your bro before you sit in a row. Give your faith some friends.

A Gathering of Grace A Gathering of Healing
