“Don’t Seek Him Alone”

SPEAKER: Troy Champ

How do you feel about sharing your relationship with God with those around you? While there is a private and powerful nature to our faith, we are not meant to journey with him alone.

In the Gospel of John, we see how the faith of one can plant and nurture the seed of faith in another. If you partner with people in Jesus, if you share your troubles and triumphs with fellow followers of Christ, you will inevitably gain a deepened understanding of every good thing we share in Jesus. The clear implication is if you don’t actively experience spiritual friendships, you’re missing out on something great. If you truly wish to seek God, don’t seek him alone.
