THE ESSENCE OF CONNECTION IS THE PERSON OF GOD.   

THE EXPRESSION OF CONNECTION IS THE PEOPLE OF GOD.

...Be at peace with each other. (Mark 9:50)

 ...Love one another... (John 13:34, 35; 15:12, 17)

 Be devoted to one another... (Romans 12:10)

...Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10)

...Stop passing judgment on one another. (Romans 14:13)

...Serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13)

Carry each other’s burdens... (Galatians 6:2)

...Be patient, bearing with one another in love. (Ephesians 4:2)

Be kind and compassionate to one another... (Ephesians 4:32)

...Forgive each other... (Ephesians 4:32)

The serious Christian, set down for the first time in a Christian community, is likely to bring with him a very definite idea of what Christian life together should be and to try to realize it. But God’s grace speedily shatters such dreams.

… Only that fellowship which faces such disillusionment, with all its unhappy and ugly aspects, begins to be what it should be in God’s sight…. The sooner this shock of disillusionment comes to an individual and to a community the better for both...Every human wish dream that is injected into the Christian community is a hindrance to genuine community and must be banished if the community is to survive. He who loves his dream of community more that the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter…

-Bonhoeffer, Life Together, 26-27
