Struggling in Your Faith? Isolation Isn’t the Answer

A thoughtful and encouraging article reminding us that wherever we are in our journey of faith, the Church family is where we meet with our gracious God.

"The hardest thing for struggling Christians to recognize is that church is exactly the community they need. So often, they feel it isn’t. Church, they tell themselves, is for the strong, the confident, the “at peace with God and man” believers. When Christians who are finding the journey hard really need to be part of the church, they convince themselves they should be anywhere but church. 

Is it the tempter at work, or is it just the natural instincts of discouraged people to isolate themselves? It’s both, of course. But this can’t be the final answer for exhausted saints. All Christians always need one another. The church is God’s masterpiece, the community in which his glory in Jesus is displayed (John 17:222 Cor. 3:18). If we’re struggling in our faith, we simply need to get ourselves to that glory display."
