Yes, sin displeases God … but how do you think He feels when we constantly point our fingers at one another and set ourselves up as judges? I think if we are ever going to impact the world, more who call themselves Christians ought to read Galatians Chapter 6 a few more times and understand that our calling is to 1) exemplify Christ and 2) walk with one another … versus spending all our time tearing one another down.
Perhaps if we will follow Christ and bring others with us … then we will begin to see the world change. #discipleshipchallenge
Pastors: People in our society need less entertainment and more repentance taught … and it’s our job to teach it! If lives are ever going to be impacted in our churches, we need to stop watering the Bible down and stand firm on God’s truth. Stop leading people down the dangerous path of self-help and instead to the cross of Christ!
1 Peter 5:1-4, “To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.”
