What does it mean to be for “the other”?
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was tremendously challenged with understanding the Body of Christ and how Christ dwells in the midst of his people. We must be there FOR each other. There is a leaning on each other that must happen. When we will be there for the other, we will find Christ there as well.
Our problem is we live for ourselves. When we get together with others, what do we want to talk about? Our OWN problems! We need to be much WITH Christ then find we are fully there for others.
Church hopping and “internet chats” won’t cut it, either. We must learn to dwell in community with flesh and blood believers! We need each other!
