Some Christians try to function independently because that’s easier than living in humility, gentleness, and patience with fellow believers. But we need each other. The fellowship of believers is an important part of God’s design for our spiritual growth.
Commentary from the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, June 15, 2019.
In a self-serve/customer service/choices galore culture, we may have an inclination to self ( I wonder why!). We don’t have to focus on self though. Other options (more options!!) are:
We can allow God to supply what we need, and He will, while we focus on Him and on others. The degree of surrender determines the degree of God’s ‘footprint’ in your life. Less of you makes room for more of Him (John 3:30).
