In the Church we see: We examine our selves regularly, and accurately discern our place in His Body. We know our position in Christ. We do not take the Church lightly, but reverence it as the Bride of Christ, of which we are a part. We fulfill our purpose as a part of His Church. Communion is taken together often in small groups, as well as the larger body in worship. The salt covenant is more than a ritual. We really mean it when we say, “I will never say or do anything on purpose to hurt you, I will always think pure thoughts about you, and I will allow God to use me to heal you.”
If I have said or done something to hurt you, it was not on purpose. I take my covenant with you very seriously. When you rejoice, I rejoice. When you hurt, I hurt and right now, we’re both hurting.
I will allow God to use me to heal you, if you can forgive me for being a selfish ignorant jerk. And a horrible friend.
