Experiencing TOGETHER in Jesus name is God’s vision for our lives and His church. He is at war against aloneness and knows we need a lot of help living the meaningful life Christ intends!
Ephesians 2 19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household… 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Ephesians 4 7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it…. 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

What are You asking me to believe about You and about me? How am I learning to Sync up?
