The time we live in, ironically, makes it harder than it was for the early church to be connected. Technology and the pace of life has made us able to stay more isolated. In some ways it may connect us more, but in other ways it also gives us an easy out and escape from real relationship, being known, and knowing others. But the roadblock of technology is welcomed for many because it helps guard from another major roadblock, which is the fear of the vulnerability that comes with being part of a Gospel Community. Discipleship and sanctification are far less like microwaves and far more like a slow cooker. Discipleship, sanctification, relationships, and life in the body are inefficient; slow, winding paths that lead towards our growth in righteousness. As we draw up the blueprints for our trellis, we must always keep in mind that the goal is never to have an incredible trellis to admire and show off. The goal is always to see vibrant Vine growth that allows us to abide in the Vine. We want to enjoy Jesus. We want to love Him more deeply and love those He has given to us.
