Let me, for a change, put this in English.  After all God gave me the English language among other languages for just one single purpose, i.e. to glorify "the Name that is above every name". Don´t get me wrong, I´m not trying to be "super spiritual", but let it be an honest concession from a sinner who owes everything to that Name as I may now be rapidly approaching the glory.

So I´m no special "divine" in a special position.  Yet I have no choice when it comes to speech, the source of all communication being the One whose name is "the Word", and to His word my enlightened conscience has been  bound since  the light of the gospel exposed me as a teenager to Calvary for the cleansing of all my sin.  Instead God gave me a blood stained platform for witnessing and singing His praise.

When my days are over, which is more and more a race against the clock, I shall be gathered to "the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in Heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to JESUS, the mediator of the new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel."  Hebr. 12-24.  In fact, I´m already there, for it says "you have come..."

There are, sad to say, exclusive groups that pound on the right way of gathering and the breaking of bread in whose midst I would often feel like a sparrow among hawks.  I  say this as kindly as I can. My vision is the whole assembly of the firstborn.  My platform is Calvary, my centre of gathering is Christ (Mt. 18:20), and God´s family is my family.  And when I stand before precious school children and see the sparkle in their eyes when Christ is presented, I feel the warmth of the Spirit´s sparkle myself. 

So I like to say to all separatists, "from now on let no one cause me trouble" (Gal. 6:17). I´m not carrying the bleeding marks of Jesus on my  body, but I trust His cross is planted in my conscience, heart and soul.
