We Need Each Other – A Gospel Cordial from Bruce Milne

‘No man is an island.’ Whatever truth John Donne’s maxim holds for men and women in general there can be no doubting its truth for the Christian in particular. To be a Christian, if it means anything at all, means being gathered out of isolation into the corporate life of the body of Christ. Christian islands simply do not exist! In Christ we belong together. According to Scripture a right relationship to God is to a significant degree a right relationship with God’s people. The quality of Christians’ relationships with fellow believers, particularly in the local church, is therefore one of the primary indicators of the quality of relationship to the Lord. – Bruce Milne, from We Belong Together: The Meaning of Fellowship
