#1 - You can't do it alone - No matter what that little voice in your head tells you, you can't effectively live the Christian life on your own. You need other christians around you to encourage and support you, especially when life gets tough and you feel like giving up.
# 2 - To be known - I'm afraid to say that in our social media driven culture, we "know" a lot of people, but most people aren't "known". To fight this spiritual battle that you are in, you need people on your side who really do know you - people who know your deepest struggles, fears and pain. You also need people who know your gifts and have a strong sense of how God has wired you.
# 3 - To use your gifts - Everyone, as a result of God's grace, has been gifted by God with a spiritual gift. In a community group setting, you have a beautiful opportunity to exercise that gift for the overall good of those in your group.
