IF you are IN Christ, you are a member… Paul and Jack:

“For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.”‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:18-22‬ ‭ESV‬‬

When I first went to Oxford the typical undergraduate society consisted of a dozen men, who knew one another intimately, hearing a paper by one of their own number in a small sitting-room and hammering out their problem till one or two in the morning. Before the war the typical undergraduate Society had come to be a mixed audience of one or two hundred students assembled in a public hall to hear a lecture from some visiting celebrity. Even on those rare occasions when a modern undergraduate is not attending some such Society he is seldom engaged in those solitary walk, or walks with a single companion, which built the minds of previous generations. He lives in a crowd; caucus that has replaced friendship.

Don’t just sit among others, gather with friends for fellow disciple-making.
