On Community

Ephesians 4 makes it quite clear that full spiritual vitality cannot be present in the church until its macro-communities and micro-communities consist of fully developed networks of Christians who are exercising their gifts and contributing to one another, so that “the whole body, joined and knit together by every joint with which it is supplied, when each part is working properly, makes bodily growth and upbuilds itself in love” (Eph. 4:16).

Questions for Reflection

  1. How do you think about your work in the church?
  2. How do you contribute to growth in the members of the church?

  1. I love this Casey. I so believe that community is one of the strongest messages the Lord is trying to communicate these days. I just put a resource together where i simply list all the “one another” scriptures of the New Testament because i believe this is the heart of the Lord right now.
