Gather Your Team for Spiritual Growth

If you want to go the distance in your relationship with Jesus, don’t run the marathon on your own. No one can run the race for you, but other people can—and should—run the race with you.

You’ll give up without support.

You don’t need 100 people with you. You don’t even need 10. You just need three or four people running with you, supporting you in all God wants to do through your life.

The Bible tells us, “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV).

That’s why you need to be in a small group. You need people who can spur you on in your spiritual life. And you need to be able to spur on others.

When you’re in a small group where you’re loved and accepted by others, they’ll give you the courage to keep going in your spiritual journey. They will pray for you when you don’t even know how to pray for yourself. They’ll help you persevere in your race.

Do whatever it takes to find a group of people committed to that kind of friendship and support.

It could mean the difference between finishing the race and quitting.
