The Bible contains a lot of instruction for the church. There are instructions for structure, leadership, operation, priorities and function. The “Dones” have left an institution that many felt was not found in the Bible. Some search for that more organic and supernatural expression of faith they see displayed in the Bible. This desire has led many of us out of the institution.
Genesis 2:18 - And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;
From the beginning God has had a design for His children to live together. Jesus clarified this more when He spoke of our love and unity.
[John 13:35 NASB] 35 "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
[John 17:22 NASB] 22 "The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;
Love and unity are not just important concepts to God. They are indicators of our union with Him. One reason the “Dones” must connect is to display to the world that we are of the father and disciples of Christ. We cannot do it apart from each other. Leaving the institution is just one step on the journey. We must move on to do church the way God designed it to be done. This will require us to connect with each other.
