- The Communion of Community - Sunday 1 May 2016 -
As we continue our series in Establishing the Foundations we come to the desperately needed and often misunderstood area of community. In the Brisbane floods of 2011 I got to see this amazing demonstration of community. People just grabbing a trailer and going to the places hit most and helping out. People opening their homes to strangers who had lost theirs. People praying for and serving others. There was a wonderful picture of hope and solidarity as the community came together in response to this devastation.
Something beautiful happens when in the trials of life we are shaken from isolation and drawn into intimacy and encouragement with those around us. You see we were made for relationship, for community. We were made not only to set our lives upon Jesus, through His Word and Prayer, but to recognise that we have been set together with others in the body of Christ. That we are now brothers and sister in one household under God, being built together into a dwelling place for God, being used together to display the wisdom, glory and love of God! You see we are no longer called to walk this life in our own strength but in His strength and in the encouragement of His people. That we can actually know the real working of God’s love for us in a practical way as we walk together honestly, vulnerably and lovingly.
Friends my great desire is that we would be a church that walks in a genuineness of relationships. That walks with a deliberate direction, pointing one another to what it looks like to be Christs’ in this generation. To live with a unity and communion that will enable us to flourish in our walks with the Lord. That we would know all the good that God has for us. But ultimately my desire is that we would do this with such selfless sacrificial love that this world will see in SBC, God! And He would receive all the glory!
“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church…” Ephesians 3:20-21a
