The Importance of Having People and Church for your Faith. Do you Need Community?

October 26, 2021

An Interview with Patricia Sung

Jesus tells us the church is the people, not the building, but what happens when we are hurt? Is the community more or less important than your relationship with Jesus for the church?

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

— Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV

4 Great Takeaways from our Chat…

I. Faith is never a straight path and sometimes anger happens.

It is surprising how many people I talk to that had something happen in the ministry when they were younger and it takes them, and sometimes the whole family away from God. Whether it is a youth group disbanded, leadership change or even a move can change things. Sometimes this change can bring about anger. Know that everyone’s faith journey is winding and He never leaves us. He is always there through all our struggles

2. Community and people are not always easy, but they are vital.

God never asks us to do this life alone. Even if it is just a couple of people, there is the right group for you. Jesus tells us the people are the church.

We can’t expect everyone to be Jesus. Not everyone is going to show you God’s love We have to separate people and hurt from the love of Jesus and the His church.

Just keep going. Build your relationship and you will find the right people, the right church to build you up, and where you will equally build them up. Together you will be the church Jesus intended us to have and spread His love.

We are called to create that community and support each other, but it can’t supersede that relationship with Him because that is always going to be with us. Whereas, we don’t know what the group of people is going to be around us. It’s a balance… careful appreciation for both, because we need both.

3. Knowing about Him is different than really knowing Him.

This all goes back to religion vs. relationship. We can exist, even going to church and never really know Him. Knowing Him takes us opening the door and be willing to be vulnerable to the fact that we could be hurt, but God is worth it.

4. Finding the time to spend with Him one-on-one can make the biggest difference in finding your faith.

You don’t have to have the perfect situation, or the perfect study, or the perfect quiet time in order to spend time with Him

— Patricia Sung

Romans 5:3-5

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
