If you are longing for connection, you aren’t alone. In his book, Community, author and pastor Brad House writes,
"Christian or not, we all have an intrinsic need for community. We all suffer from the isolation that sin breeds. Our neighbors are desperate to belong and be connected to a people. Some try to rebuild community through social action, campaigns, planning better cities, revitalizing neighborhood schools, or feeding the homeless…These are all attempts to satisfy the need for community, but the problem is, none of these solutions address the real problem. They don’t address the cause of isolation." (32)
According to Scripture, the cause of our isolation is our sin. Though we were created to live in community with God and others, our sin has left us isolated from God and others.
The solution to this problem, as House noted above, is not simply connecting in community. The solution is reconciliation to God and others through faith in the Good News of Jesus.
When we receive God’s grace through faith, we are brought into community with God and one another. As Peter says,
"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy." (1 Peter 2:9-10)
