Revealing Ourselves to One Another

By Marcel Rebiai

 “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25

We can only really reveal our hearts in the light of God’s Word and in the trust found in the fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We need people who do not just hold up a mirror displaying who we are and how we behave, but who also offer us orientation, encouragement and help towards becoming whole and growing in our fulfilment in Christ.

This requires commitment, and in God’s kingdom there can be no liberating and protecting fellowship without accountability and commitment. True, committed fellowship can only set us free when it happens beneath the cross of Jesus, so we too can experience the power of the resurrection.

Commitment is expressed through how we become accountable to one another, how we live out our relationships, how we deal with time, with our material possessions and with the goals we aim for in life. It can be seen in how we confide in others and take heed of their warnings and reproofs in our lives, allowing them to point us back to the path of Christ. This is a very practical process that needs to take place in our daily lives – being accountable to God means being accountable to the brothers and sisters God has placed us in community with, so that through us and in us, God’s kingdom becomes flesh.
