Scattered Together in Him

We are together for mission in Jesus.

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
To the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia…
2 Corinthians 1.1

Life Together
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)
“God’s people must dwell in far countries among the unbelievers, but it will be the seed of the Kingdom of God in the world…God’s people remain scattered, held together solely in Jesus Christ, having become one in the fact that, dispersed among unbelievers, they remember Him in the far countries.”

Every church in every place lays claim to the title, “the Body of Christ.” Yet we know that, in reality, every church is but a microcosm and fragment of the one Body of Christ worldwide. Jesus said the world needs to see our oneness if it is to believe that He was sent from the Father (Jn. 17.21). We can hardly expect to establish much visible oneness with churches all over the world if we’re unable – or unwilling – to do so at the local level. Local churches are signs and outposts of the Kingdom of God. Believers in a community are citizens and ambassadors of a Kingdom that transcends whatever differences might separate us as we focus together on Christ and His mission in the world. But if local churches are ever to fulfill their Kingdom callings, pastors must take the lead and create opportunities for all the believers in their communities to express and experience life together as the one Body of Christ. Might that not begin with pastors joining together monthly to seek the Lord for revival, renewal, and awakening? And might not you be the pastor in your community to catalyze this effort?

In your community, are there other churches who love the Lord Jesus and honor His Word? In what ways is your church one with them?

Praying for Revival
During the third week of each month, pastors and lay leaders join as men together in the Lord to seek Him for revival. Here’s a way you can experience the unity of life together in the Body of Christ, with pastors from other churches and places, as you join to seek the Lord in prayer. If you would like to join one of our online Revival Prayer Groups, send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Revival Prayer Groups
You can begin a Revival Prayer Group with pastors in your community. Our book, Restore Us!, provides the rationale, format, and resources for putting such a group together. Order your copy by clicking here.

We rejoice in the goodness of our heavenly Father, Who provides the support our ministry requires through the generous and faithful gifts of those who benefit from and believe in our work. Does the Lord want to use you in this way? Please look to Him in prayer over this question. You can contribute to The Fellowship of Ailbe by using the Contribute button at our website, or by sending your gift to The Fellowship of Ailbe, 19 Tyler Drive, Essex Junction, VT 05452. Thank you.
