Excerpt Transcript

I don’t want to twist the arm of a loner and say, “You ought to do this, or it is your duty to do this.” I want to say, “You are missing something. Really missing something.” There is more of Christ to be known. There is more of God to be known. God said to a happy man, “It is not good for you to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). And Paul said to a church, “The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you,’ nor again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’” (1 Corinthians 12:21). They can’t. And if you are an eye or a hand or a finger or a pinky or big toe standing off by yourself saying, “I don’t need them,” you’re wrong.
