Living in isolation with the pretense of autonomy is, of course, "the American way." Our heroes are those rugged individuals like the Lone Ranger or Superman or Rambo who can do everything themselves and need no one's help. But when we insist on gong solo, when the 'I did it my way' syndrome strikes, we are essentially rejecting God's plan for how we should live with one another. When we refuse to be in relationships of accountability and interdependence with one another, we are choosing to live in violation of God's created design. It's really that simple...Surely this is one of the main reasons that the Spirit assigns gifts to each believer in the body of Christ, so that we will both give to one another and depend on one another in our growing in Christ.
