In this transformational book, trusted pastor Thabiti Anyabwile repositions our thinking about spiritual fellowship. Extending the concept of Divine life presented in Henry Scougal’s classic The Life of God in the Soul of Man, Anyabwile contends that union with Christ is not individualistic, but is discerned in the soul of the local church. This vision of spiritual fellowship is not centred on external activities and programs, but on our shared life in Christ, as we share one another’s sufferings, use our spiritual gifts for the good of the body, partner in spreading the gospel and grow spiritually together.The Life of God in the Soul of the Church is experienced personally by believing the truth and shared relationally in the church which leads to great joy and holiness.
I found this little book quite insightful and telling of how the church should relate to it’s members. And how the members of the church should relate to the church, it’s fellow member, and the community in which it resides. By actively reading, I found myself getting lost in the proposed and inferred functioning of the people.
If you get a chance to read it, get it and read it.
Godspeed & Good Reads!
