Christianity is a group of followers of Jesus Christ who are a part of a community. We who follow Jesus Christ, have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior and because of this we are accepted in the Heavenly family of God. Even if we do not meet other believers face to face in this life, or if we do not agree with them on certain views they hold to, or if we do not enjoy being around them because they have broken your heat, hurt your feelings, or just annoy you, this does not change the fact that we are in a community. We are called by God to be a community based on the love He shows to us. We are commanded to not only show love to those who are in our community as believers, but we are to show love to those outside our community of believers so that they can have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The people you hang aroud is a factor in determining how your life will turn out in the future. If you hang around friends who degrade you and others, then you will become like that and talk lowly of other people. Bad company corrupts good morals. If you hang around people who care about you and show love to you and are willing to correct you when you are in the wrong in a loving manner, then you will be more likely to do the same.

Growing in the Lord day by day,
