Connection

Hebrews 10:19–22 ESV
Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Hebrews 10:23–25 ESV
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.

Why is this important?

Gathering here doesn’t just mean on Sundays
The church is not just this building
We are the church!
Developing relationships is so important but it has to be more than just here
But we cannot miss being here!
It’s not about having numbers here
It’s about you being able to have connection, community and completion!

Where do we go from here?

Commit to gathering REGULARLY
Do not let this be second on your list to anything!
Had a long week - Refresh here!
Struggling with life - Find answers here!
Nothing should take the place of being here and allowing God to use this place and these people to live this life the way he wants you to!
