Feeling God’s love through community

Being a part of a church community was a strange concept for me. I started to come to COOL meetings when I first moved to Melbourne and a friend of mine asked me to join. After weeks of declining, I eventually gave it a shot partly because I felt bad for constantly turning his invitations down. But now I can honestly say I am so thankful God has lead me to such a beautiful group of people. My small COOL community is not made up of perfect people, but from them I can feel God’s grace and love shining through. I picked up my Bible for the first time in years and together we study the Words of God, pray and support each other through tough times. Joining a COOL was truly a blessing and I am thankful every day for the opportunity.

My Second Family

I came to Melbourne to pursue my study and joined COOL for the first time (ever). It’s crazy how this community has shaped and helped me grow in my journey with God. Their warm welcome and hospitality show me a glimpse of Jesus which makes me want to know more about Him.

Through this community, I have learned that it has never been about me. I was never brave enough to pray for others as being judged is one of my fears. However, they taught me how to listen without judgement, to serve and care for one another, and more importantly, they encourage me to strive and seek God daily. I have called them my second family ever since.

A Christ-Centred Community and a Christ-Loving Family

Having a Christ-centered community means that we have friends that help and support us in our growth of faith. They are our second family away from home. The essence of a community is to build each other up in Christ, according to His Word. Nobody is perfect, so we shouldn’t put our expectations in people, but only keep our eyes towards His abounding grace.

We have to shift our focus from ‘what do I get from this community?’ to ‘what can I give to this community?’. That way, we don’t focus on ourselves, but we can see others and treat others with love. Even though it’s not perfect, and it may not be the same for everyone, one thing that we can expect when we join a Christ-centered community, essentially, is to have a Christ-loving family.

By joining a community, we will love and feel loved, as Jesus has loved us. And most importantly, our faith will be anchored more strongly in Him.

Likewise teach the older woman to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to live their husband and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. (NIV) - Titus 2:3-5

Isaiah 61:1-3 - 'The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me to bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives And freedom to prisoners, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance and retribution of our God, To comfort all who mourn, To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following: To give them a turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning], The oil of joy instead of mourning, The garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit. So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.'
