Being in relationships within the local church is not just a matter of preference, but a biblical mandate. The church is not a place we attend as consumers, but a community we belong to as members. Through the practice of meaningful relationships, we experience the joys of Christian fellowship, mutual encouragement, and accountability. In these relationships, we also grow in our understanding of the gospel and the ways in which it impacts our daily lives. Therefore, let us prioritize our involvement in the local church, not only for our own benefit, but for the sake of the body of Christ as a whole.
