Spiritual and social worship

Henry Neufeld comments on his need for both spiritual and social worship:

The idea of being spiritual without a social aspect bothers me. The more I study, the more I see the command to love God and to love one’s neighbor as almost identical. This week’s lectionary text, Matthew 25:31-46 (The Sheep and the Goats), brings that more to the fore. Jesus is appearing in the form of people who need my help, and my love for Him is manifested in what I do for them.

Does your faith allow you to do works for other people who need your help, or is it all about you?

    Love of God causes love of Man. I wouldn’t bet on the reverse. It’s very easy to be busy on religious business, without doing your duty to God.

    Find out what Christ wants from you. The rest will follow.
