The Way to Fellowship

Christ is the Key to oneness.

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one… Ephesians 2.14

Life Together
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)
“But without Christ we also would not know our brother, nor could we come to him. The way is blocked by our own ego. Christ opened the way to God and to our brother. Now Christians can live with one another in peace; they can love and serve one another; they can become one.”

It would be difficult to overemphasize the importance of unity, fellowship, and oneness in the Body of Christ – not just within our churches, but between and among churches as well. Jesus brings us together in Him. He makes us partake of the same Spirit. He prays for us to be one as He and the Father are one. Does our current fragmentation, our separateness and indifference toward one another in the Body of Christ, suggest that one or more of us may not be as firmly “in Christ” as we might like to think? Is Jesus Christ divided? Jesus broke down the dividing walls separating Jews and Gentiles, but we have built up new walls – doctrinal, liturgical, denominational – to prevent us from being one together in Christ. Jesus works to make us one. We work against Him when we are indifferent or hostile to this agenda.

Do you think enough emphasis is placed on the importance of our oneness in Jesus Christ in your ministry? Why or why not?

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.

The End of Protestantism?
Would that be a good thing? If we understand it the way Peter J. Leithart does, it could be a very good thing, indeed. What Bonhoeffer wrote about in Life Together at the local level, Peter J. Leithart dares to envision at the universal level for all true followers of Jesus Christ. No one has written as persuasively, courageously, or clearly about Christian unity than in Peter’s book, The End of Protestantism. You need to read this book and join the ranks of those who are seriously thinking about how to encourage life together in the Body of Christ by every available means.

Thanks to those of you who support our work with your prayers and gifts. Our heavenly Father supports The Fellowship of Ailbe 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.
