As Christians, what is our responsibility? Our ultimate responsibility as Christians is not just to preach the gospel, but to live Christ and to meet together in our locality in such a way that we may be the Body of Christ, the new man, the lampstand, and the bride. Our meeting should be in oneness. The Christ we live and preach is not divided. The Christ we testify is not divided.
We live Christ according to this view we have of Him. We live the all-inclusive, extensive Christ who is now the life-giving Spirit as the ultimate expression of the Triune God after passing through many processes. And we meet together according to locality as the church, the church which is not only an assembly but also the Body, the new man, the lampstand, and the bride. We also practice the genuine oneness in every locality—one Body, one Spirit, one city, one church. Such a living is our ultimate responsibility.
Lord Jesus, make us those who live You day by day…. [guest post: Emmanuel]
