Do you know your community? There is a great need for all of us to have a community that we belong to. The company you keep will determine your accomplishments in life. It would be best if you had a community that you could easily move to.
Who is in your company?
With Peter and John (Acts 4:23-24), their companions came together and prayed and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. Wonderful things happen when you are in the company of the right people. There is a need for you to join positive company, the disciples formed their own community and people greatly benefitted from it.
Do you belong to a community?
All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper, and to prayer. (Acts 2:42)
All the five purposes of the church happened in the community:
- Fellowship\Meeting together – Membership
- Spending time studying the word -Maturity
- Feeding of people and community service – Ministry
- Preaching the gospel – Mission
- Exalting and praising God -Worship
When these people were together in these communities, they took care of each other and treated themselves as family.
In Daystar, we also have communities, the hybrid community and the online community. The hybrid community meets physically, especially here in Lagos and the online community meets online with over 16,000 people as members. There is a community for you, whatever your preference is.
In these communities you can relax and be vulnerable, you can be yourself and have supernatural connections.
What are you waiting for, join a community today!
