We Need People


God’s will for us is experienced most fully when we are with each other. Conroy shares about the importance of each other as we grow in Christ. Using Paul and Timothy as primary examples, he shares five things we must give and receive from each other:

  1. Encouragement – to speak life to one another
  2. Godly examples – to show life to each other.
  3. Love – both giving and receiving this hallmark of Christ’s disciples. 
  4. Spiritual encouragement. 
  5. Purity – accountability toward holiness that comes from regular interaction

Drawing from the life of David, LaMar shares several heart characteristics that are needed to draw someone after God. A person who has a heart like God’s prepares their heart, meditates in their heart, rests in their heart, and rejoices in their heart. They also have a broken and contrite heart, reflecting God’s heart over sin.
