What is significant about the words “saints by profession”? What biblical passages and imagery is used to explain the communion of saints? How does a biblical understanding of the communion of saints differ from the Roman Catholic view? How does worship help us maintain a “holy fellowship”? What is some of the New Testament’s “spiritual service” that we give to one another? What is the scope of “outward things”? Why does this paragraph end on a note of universality? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 26.2:
Saints, by profession, are bound to maintain an holy fellowship and communion in the worship of God, and in performing such other spiritual services as tend to their mutual edification; as also in relieving each other in outward things, according to their several abilities and necessities. Which communion, as God offereth opportunity, is to be extended unto all those who, in every place, call upon the name of the Lord Jesus.
