Living in any city, culture, or country, surrounded by its social structures and values, only an ongoing inner renewing can prevent Christians from becoming subconsciously molded and conformed into its image. Those in Christ need to gather regularly apart from the world’s town meetings and the peer pressure that surrounds them. Instead, Christians need to continually gather as Jesus’ town meeting in order to practice the 50+ New Testament “one another” commands (according to the example of 1 Corinthians 14:26) in order to remind each other of and to experience together, our supernatural citizenship in the kingdom of God.
Jesus said: I will build my town meeting (ekklesia in Greek). Now He calls citizens of His kingdom to gather in His name to learn to be led by His Spirit as He facilitates His town meeting.
