We are living in a day when people are more disconnected than any other time in history. I believe that God wants us to be connected to Him and to each other. Ministries at church should be designed to connect people in relationship with God and with each other. In this hectic day in which we live, it’s easy to get so busy that we neglect the important matters. Too often the cares of this life keep up from developing positive, healthy relationships. Paul wrote in Ephesians 2:19, “You are members of God’s very own family, citizens of God’s country and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.” God calls us members of His family. The family is designed to be a close relational unit, but how can we say that we are in God’s family if we are not connected? Unfortunately, I’ve seen many people suffer in times of crisis because they did not have the support that strong relationships can bring. God wants us to be connected with Him and with each other. At church there should be many opportunities for everyone to “Get Connected.” Each ministry should focus on helping people develop relationships with God and with each other. The most natural place for people to become connected is in the arena of similar interests. We all have things in which we are interested and these can be a basis for developing happy, healthy relationships. I would like to encourage you to discover an area of interest/ministry and get connected in your local church!
