Commonality through Christ

I hope this posting doesn’t get lost in the middle of all the postings regarding the Leadership Conference.  We finished up our study of the Romans on Sunday.  One interesting topic that came up that I want to expound on further is our commonality with Christ.  Paul obviously felt a strong connection with other believers.
If a church were made up of doctors, most doctors would feel comfortable going to church and talking to fellow doctors.  If a church were made up of single mothers, most single mothers would feel comfortable going to church and talking to others who share some of their same experiences.  I could go on, but the point is made.
The church, however, is not made up of a single social group, and the commonality we have between us is an eternal bond not measured by human standards.  Even as Christians we don’t always think this way, but we have more in common with Chinese Christians that we can’t communicate with than we do with non-christian members of our same social groups.  Our social groups are temporary ties that are insignificant when compared to eternity.   The bond that we have with Christ will have an impact that will last forever.

    the thing that christians have in common with eachother is that they are not able to think for themselves. Believing that you need a god to tell you (shame you) into behaving or you will upset god and go to hell is psychotic at best. Try thinking for yourself for once. You can do it. Its really not as hard as you make it out to be.
