Thrive: Thrive Together | Part 4

Big Idea: God created me to thrive in COMMUNITY.

Thought 1: Thriving together is a PRIVILEGE 

Romans 12:5 – so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

Luke 4:28-30 – 28 When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. But passing through their midst, he went away.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 – Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: lf either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Thought 2: Thriving together is a RESPONSIBILITY 

1 Thessalonians 5:14 – And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

Galatians 6:2 – Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Thought 3: Thriving together is God’s PLAN

1 Corinthians 12:17-20 – If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.
