Community In The Trucking Industry?
I have heard all the excuses why community among believers in the trucking industry cannot happen. And that is just what they are….EXCUSES. On top of that we have ignored the biblical mandate God has given us concerning the need for believers to meet together no matter what their occupation or time constraints.
Why is community with other Christian believers so important?
Christian community is a big deal. Even among the trucking community. It's important for our happiness and growth. And it's not an optional part of the Christian life. When we are in close relationships with other believers, we have people to pray for us, support us, encourage us, exhort us and serve alongside us.
The question we as a ministry would ask is "Is the trucking community ready to recognize the need that exists for community among the professional driver, his family and others who are part of the trucking industry? We should be, because as I said earlier it is not an optional part of the Christian Life!
The Bible gives us verses like: “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:24-25, )
When we are in close relationships with other believers, we have people to pray for us, support us, encourage us, exhort us and serve alongside us. We have people that we can minister to and are able to “Do Life “with. Just like any relationship, there are difficulties within Christian community, but it’s totally worth it!
