Community Obsessed (Galatians 6:1-10)Pastor Joe Sanders, January 24, 2010
Part of the What Faith Can Do series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
The word obsession generally has very negative connotations, yet we are obsessed with a lot of things. We can easily get distracted from what is supposed to consume our thoughts and get fixated on the wrong things and people. At The Sanctuary, we have agreed by covenant that we will live in community with each other. Though sometimes that is uncomfortable and doesn't seem to fit us, we have no Biblical excuse to live outside of real community. This is an invitation and reminder that God has created us to live in community and that one of our main expressions of faith in Christ is to be obsessed with living in meaningful community with other Believers.

1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5For every man shall bear his own burden. 6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (KJV)
