He Is Here

2 Corinthians 7:5 (NLT)
... in Macedonia,... We faced conflict from every direction, with battles on the outside and fear on the inside.

- It's instructive to see the famous apostle admit to fear. Despite our "head knowledge" telling us that with God we have no need to fear, actually achieving a faith so deep as to banish all fear is a lifetime goal.

2 Corinthians 7:6 (NLT)
But God, who encourages those who are discouraged, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus.

- Someone once said that there are times when we definitely need God to be present in the flesh - to "have skin!" Here is one example of how he does just that.

And he still does it all the time, through us helping each other.

So true ... communion and community are similar words for a reason. I've had many challenges of one sort and another actually caused by family, community and church - but my life has been richer and more rewarding from knowing these people. We're not meant to go through life alone.
