Never isolate yourself as a Christian from other Christians. Never keep at a distant from other believers in spiritual relationships. Christians who believe the Christian life is individual and private reveal a serious flawed understanding of the call of Christ on their lives. When Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me” He is calling us to deny ourselves in order to no longer live for ourselves. The whole of the Christian is death to self, not living for self. Our joy comes not in isolating and serving ourselves, but living in close community with other believers and serving them (Matthew 16:24; Acts 2:42).
