God is for Community…
God did not at any time create a solitary entity; He made humans a community. The proof is found in Genesis 1:27; He made male and female. Verse 28 says He blessed them, not him or her alone.
God’s intention from the actions of creation is to have family in unity, or people united to build a community. This essential factor of creation was clearly understood by humans as shown in Genesis 11:6-7, only that this time its application was twisted; they were people of common interest for a wrong purpose. God said the people have become one and nothing they plan to do will be impossible.
United we stand, divided we fall! Unity is the key to power; whether it is the unity of the Spirit of man with the Spirit of God, which is spiritual power, or the unity of a husband and wife, which is family dominion. Friends, neighbors, their unity produce community power. God’s desire is that we all come together in unity. That is community! “Come-on in Unity” or Common Unity. The reason He gave us ministry gifts or offices is to grow in unity. Ephesian 4:11-13. There is Power in unity! But how could we attain unity without fellowship? “The family that prays together stays together”
