I remember one particular time when we had to go to the emergency room in the middle of the night. Our daughter was sound asleep and we didn’t want to have to drag her out of bed.
My extended family was all out of town, and we needed someone to call. We called one family at 3:00am and they were THERE for us. This family, THEY had us covered!
There is HUGE value in surrounding ourselves with people that believe like we do. We all need the right “THEY” in our lives!
How do you find that and how do you know who THEY are?
In the Bible (Mark 2) a paralyzed man had these four crazy friends. When Jesus came to town it was so crowded they couldn’t get in. So they climbed up on the house, ripped off the roof and lowered their friend down…right in front of Jesus!
When there was NO WAY for this man to help himself, his relationship with other Christ followers built him a bridge to connect to Jesus and be healed. He had the right “THEY” around him.
In an iConnect small group at Faith Church or in your own church wherever in the world you are, the right “THEY” will support us and help us make OUR way. They’re the people that will be there for us in the middle of the night when we need counsel or prayer:
· For ourselves
· For our family
· Or even someone we know
“Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14 (KJV)
If we’ll purposely set aside time to build relationships with other Christ followers it will only DEEPEN our own connection with God and, ultimately, keep us from falling through the cracks in life!
