How is Your Covenant-Consciousness?

Do you think of yourself continually as a part of the community of God’s people? Are they your life? Are you in their homes and are they in yours? True, biblical spirituality has its feet firmly planted on the ground. It does things—“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.  Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith” (Gal. 6:9-10). “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:16)— this is not mere “inner light.”

  1. This issue is perplexing to me as a (new)pastor's wife. Do you have suggestions on teachings regarding the practical outworkings of this "consciousness"? Our family is just so VERY different from those in the flock we've been planted amongst.

    I have enjoyed contemplating your recent posts on community.
