Gospel Shaped Community

Don't Do Life Alone Series
Presenter: Matt Shires

"Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:19-25‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Focus: Following Jesus was never meant to be an individual endeavor. 

I. Our tendency will always be toward INDIVIDUALISM

   1. Consider how to SPUR (PROVOKE) EACH OTHER ON
   2. Consider how to STAY PRESENT 
   3. Consider how to ENCOURAGE 

III. Following Jesus includes understanding that we are now PART of the BODY
