There is a multitude of people around the world who have given their lives to Jesus and He has taken hold of them to be His very own. This is called the Church. Remember, God created us to be in relationship with Him and with others. Only by living in close community with people who know Jesus will you be able to keep living in His Life. We must consistently read the Bible, talk with God, and willingly obey Him. Christian friends will help us understand the Bible which is the way God makes Himself known. The Church helps us to be able to obey the Bible’s teachings and to walk with Jesus. Life is very hard for all of us, and Christian community offers deep relationship with people who will pray for us and never leave us alone.

Ephesians 3:14-21 (NLT)
14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,
15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.
16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.
17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.
18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
21 Glory to him in the Church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
