We Change Together: The Habit of Community in Transformation (Romans 12:3-8)
Have you ever started a new habit with a friend? People who study transformation emphasize the need for a supportive community. The Bible presupposes community (the authors’ culture is not nearly as individualistic as ours) and builds it at the same time (selfishness is not a new human trait!). This week we’ll ask why Paul’s transformation passage in Romans moves straight from “be transformed” to a strong meditation on community.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
