We all want the opposite of loneliness? We need to belong. To one another, to our friends and families, to our culture and country, to our world.
There is a spiritual belonging that takes care of all the rest. We are "one" with the universal body of Christ, yet God sees fit to connect us to families within. Set places where He chooses to speak to you. It really is important that you have "a" church; which church is equally important. If you are a Pastor its important to provide a worship atmosphere where the veil has been lifted. Worship where there is no separation between humanity and God. Worship where "oneness" between YOU and God is revealed Sunday after Sunday after Sunday (or whatever day it is you worship).
One day the BIG light will come on and you will you know that you are so intimately "one" with God that the Godhead is not complete without you. John 14:20 says, "At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you."
John 17:22-23 says, "I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me."
I am so thankful for the revelation of grace that is flowing in the body of Christ. I am so thankful to see it illuminated in my fellowship (both local and national). Don't let someone tell you this is something new. I would think it a little bit arrogant for anyone to think they are the forerunner of grace. These truth are ancient and have always been in the body of Christ. Right now God is shinning the BIG light on grace (the person of Jesus).
