You Are Never Alone


You are part of the covenant bodies you are members of—your family, your church and state.
This means all of your thoughts, words, and behavior affects those you are in covenant with (or will be in covenant with).

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are Gods. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

You are connected to the past and to the future. You are part of a great river that has an upstream and a downstream. There are no genuinely “private acts.” We’re always connected to the community. Our attitudes, words and behavior constantly impact others, and indeed, the entire culture.

We should want our words and actions to be such that we are known to be peacemakers and lovers of the brethren. So regarding:

    "We’re always connected to the community. Our attitudes, words and behavior constantly impact others, and indeed, the entire culture."

    Yes, Amen!
