Why is it incredibly important  to be in a CLG?  The answer is..."SO THAT"
HUH??? ...SO THAT...WWWHAT?!?!
John 17:20-21 (NASB), "I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, SO THAT the world may believe that You sent Me.
