For through the law, I died to the law, that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ, yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me (Gal. 2:19-20).
We must radically relinquish our perceived, conditioned, set needs of group and subgroup mentality and function as Christians--no longer us but Christ living in us. We will perceive and act in the temporal from the spiritual living waters, not as animals, not as birds, not as secularists, not this or that group label, not with our identities forged to any other than: Christ.
Have written for several hours on something perhaps not interesting to most. Yet I continue to ponder not needing structured groups within the Church. Seems if we would spiritually actualize "being" in the Body of Christ, and let His reality permeate all our relationships and gatherings, we'd be better off. Seems that is what Christ exemplifies.
