An online poll asked the question: Do you ever go to the movie theater alone? 32% of the almost 2000 participants said, “I prefer to go with someone else.” 11% felt that going to the cinema alone was “totally weird,” and would never do it. Have you ever wondered why so many of us feel this way? Perhaps it’s because the best experiences are best when they’re shared. Even the least consequential parts of life (like movies) feel funny when we can’t talk to someone else about what just happened. Following Jesus is no different. In fact, the Scriptures take it beyond a suggestion, and make doing life together a rule.
