Community is a distinct group of people having the same interests. People who are in community have something in common. They all live in the same area, attend the same church or their children attend the same school.
God wants us to live in community. That means we are to be all together on one accord. That’s where the power is.
In the Book of Acts when the disciples were waiting for the coming of the Holy Spirit, He came in only ten days after Jesus’ ascension because they were all together in one place with the same mindset and same goal.
Community simply means a “common union.” We have that common union when we celebrate Holy Communion, as well as when we communicate with one another.
There is a special bond among people in community. Your neighbor is a small community. Your church is a small community. Your school or place of employment is a small community.
When you bond and get along with others in a small community, it prepares you for a larger group even though the smaller group will have a different type of bonding because the individuals would have worked closer and shared more. Everybody is somebody in community.
If one person left the community, the others will feel the effects of it because the dynamics will change.
In community everyone looks out for the others for the common good of all. You can feel God’s presence through community. If you agree with that you can say, “Hallelujah!”
