This month’s issue of The Intercessor examines living in fellow-ship with others–applying spirit-truths to the challenges of living in daily unity as the Body of Christ. Norman Grubb reminds us from John 3:7 that "our righteousness among men is the proof–the acid test–of our righteousness before God." Great in theory, but how to work it out in daily living?
Beginning with its lead article, "Harmonious Relationships," this issue collects penetrating articles by Norman Grubb that provide biblical and practical principles for living in fellowship with others. In addition, these accounts deal with thorny issues that may hinder or interrupt fellowship: my attitude towards situations and people who frustrate me ("Applied to Daily Life"), relating to people who do not believe as I believe ("Difficult People"), living in harmony while holding to the fundamentals of the faith ("Long on Faith, Short on Love"), how to see others as Jesus Christ sees us ("How Do I Look at People"). We also include two excellent excerpts from Norman’s classic book The Liberating Secret (now re-published in its entirety): "Walking With My Brother" and "Fellowship in the Body."
We also present candid accounts of people who faced these daily challenges in the pressure-cooker of close fellowship–and learned from their experiences how to "walk in the light as He is in the light": Norman Grubb ("My Personal Discovery of the Total Truth" and "C.T. was Right and We were Wrong"), C.T.Studd (from Fool and Fanatic) and Edith Moules (from Mighty Through God).
"I Was a Fool" presents insight into living in fellowship today from a different perspective. Kari Mace shares her account of how she was rescued from long-standing sin through the loving intervention of her fellowship family.
Finally, on the topic of fellowship today, we are delighted to present the conference report of a recent Zerubbabel fellowship day in the Philadelphia area. To those who have been encouraged by the life-changing principles found in The Intercessor, we encourage you to contact us about hosting or attending a Zerubbabel fellow-ship weekend.
