V. 1 If a person was gathered to the Lord's precious Name in one city, he is in one fellowship with those who are also gathered to the Lord's name in any other city. And so as these believers went from place to place, they took with them a letter that would introduce them to those believers in other cities. Each assembly was not independent of the others. We read in Eph. 4:33Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:3), "endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit", and this is one way in which they followed this instruction. The Bible never speaks of denominations, but of one body.
V. 6 The "letter" is the law that was given by Moses, and the "spirit" is like God's wonderful message of grace, given by His Spirit.
V. 11 The law that was given by Moses was glorious but it was "done away". But that which is God's message by His Spirit "remaineth".
V. 18 To the extent that the Lord is controlling my life, so I am going to become more like Him. Serious thought!
