Jesus is our Peace; His work on the Cross obliterates all barriers that hinder true community. Followers of Christ are called to remain with each other in community with one another. However, the forging of community, even among God’s people, is fraught with much potential peril. We can forget the unity that Christ has established by building our lives and our identity around a cause other than the Lord Jesus Christ.
Stephen Altrogge pastors a church in Pennsylvania. He writes about the need to root our church community in the Lord Jesus Christ. Through the Cross, Christ has established a unity for His people. Thus, we are called to keep the Cross as the center of our identity.
I want to encourage you to read his excellent blog post:
