Good Morning !!!
One of the first gifts I was given after returning from Vietnam and becoming a follower of Jesus Christ as member of 1st Southern Baptist Church San Diego was the book “The Cost of Discipleship” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Recently I received the gift “Reflections” by Dietrich.
At the time I also purchased a Thompson Chain Reference Bible…a massive thing. I wore the covers off the Thompson and have more than a couple of copies of The Cost.
Today’s Devotional Thought again comes from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Daily Dig for July 13
Christianity means Community through Jesus Christ and in Jesus Christ. No Christian community is more or less than this. Whether it be a brief, single encounter or the daily fellowship of years, Christian community is only this.
We belong to one another only through and in Jesus Christ.
We belong to One Another. Hmmmmm…
Kind of scrapes against the grains of American Individualism and it’s exalted Freedoms.
