Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches” (John 15:5). 1 Peter 2:5 says that we are like living stones built up to become the Church. We are parts that make up one body. I gather from these descriptions that we’re meant to see ourselves as part of something bigger than ourselves. We’re meant to be lost – in a good and freeing way – in that connection.
