The Living Needed for the Church Life in a Proper and Healthy Local Church

Read this article in PDF formatFor our living in the local church life to be healthy we must have some basic items. First, we must be on the local ground. Second, we must have the fellowship of the Body of Christ. Third, we must have a healthy teaching. We must also have a proper humanity, a proper living, and we must have a way for the gifts in the Body of Christ to come forth among us. Finally, we must walk in love, even as Christ also loved us.


Ephesians 4:1 says, “I beseech you therefore, I, the prisoner in the Lord, to walk worthily of the calling with which you were called.” This refers to something related to our life. What should characterize this life? He continues, “With all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, bearing one another in love.” The Apostle Paul gives us the key. What is the secret of the church life? The secret of the church life is this: concerning yourself, be low; concerning the saints, be meek; and concerning the growth of the saints, be long-suffering. These three matters are crucial.
