Why place this chapter here? What’s the significance of the name “saints”? This is one of the first places where we read of “union with Christ,” what is that? How do we have fellowship with Jesus in his graces, sufferings, death, resurrection, and glory? Why is our union with each other one of love? How do we share in our gifts and graces? What other pastoral application is there here for us? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 26.1:
All saints that are united to Jesus Christ their head, by his Spirit and by faith, have fellowship with him in his graces, sufferings, death, resurrection, and glory: and being united to one another in love, they have communion in each other’s gifts and graces, and are obliged to the performance of such duties, public and private, as do conduce to their mutual good, both in the inward and outward man.
