No disciple is without the need of help. That is why God established the church. We are to live out our faith in community with transparency and vulnerability, sharing our lives with one another, discipling, and being discipled, serving, and being served. We need each other. Ephesians 4:16 describes this beautifully
“…the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”
As each of us follows Jesus, exercising our spiritual gifts for the good of the body, we are participating with God building up the body in love.
