MM Book 1 Chapter 5-11

Christ expressly instructed that His family is not to operate like gentile nations [the CARNAL SYSTEMIC], using a system of hierarchical government !! - in God's family, the greatest is known by his willingness to submit to others and serve them -- in Luke 12:13-14, our Savior had a perfect opportunity to exercise authoritarian rulership over one of His followers - notice what He did: "And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. And he said unto him, Man, ** who made me a judge or a divider over you?" ** - we must understand that God does NOT desire to exercise lordship over us - it is Satan's desire to exercise domination over others; God's purpose, desire, is the exact opposite: ** it is to serve His creation !! ** IN RELATIONSHIP, and this, our relationship, *is* the GOVERNMENT of GOD !!

A confederation of congregations [a loose confederation; not an organization, but an organism], each congregation *a* living work of God, NOT *the* work of God [unfruitful; the corporate pyramid; the COG Inc.]; each *knowing* God our Father, and our High Priest Jesus Christ, and acknowledging our total dependence on them, and on ourselves, in relationship *as one*, as co-rulers -- how we lead our life is our work, the path of forgiveness, how we relate to those around us, our relationship *with* each other [living with *meaning*]; every one of our thoughts and actions impacts others and it's our work to act in a way that brings peace and love into the world - as we serve others, we are also changed; through selfless service we develop compassion and learn to trust in God's willingness to provide us with what we need at any moment; benefiting others benefits ourselves - work isn't an end, it's a means, a tool that helps us to develop in consciousness - as we are transformed, we transform others !!
