What is holding you back?

Read: Acts 2

The Holy Spirit, the counselor Jesus promised, arrives. Peter preaches a message about Jesus, and the Christian church begins.

No matter how introverted you might be, deep inside of all of us is a need for relationship. That longing is first for a relationship with God and second for a relationship with others. God never intended for us go about our lives without a sense of community. We all need fellow Christians we can share our lives with.

In Acts 2, Peter and the other believers shared meals and prayed together. Like Peter and the early Christians, we are to share what God is teaching us. That means sharing our hardships and our answered prayers.

...They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people (Acts 2:46-47).

Through the local church, God has given us a way to connect with other believers, so we can love and encourage one another as we become more like Jesus. But just like our relationship with Jesus required a first step, relationships with other believers require a first step.

God is constantly working through friendships to change lives and help people take next steps in their walk with Jesus. God gives us the strength to overcome sin in our life, and community supports us as we overcome.

What does this passage teach us about God? How does it apply to you?

We all need Christians friends who will celebrate with us in good times and support us during hard times. As you think about your friendships, are there other Christians you can share your life with?
