We as Christians often turn others off by our misguided behavior, we are suppose to walk in Love. And that has nothing to do with finger-pointing and belittling others. What does love look like? If it doesn’t look and sound like what God said through Jesus Christ in the New Testament,then we need to check our Fruit. God has given us the right to do as we please,it’s called free will.He has already attached the consequences. We do not have to beat people down about what they do or say.That is not why we were called !So many Christians are misguided by trying to live according to the Law! It did not work back then, nor does it work now. Jesus said in Matthew
Matthew 22:36-40 ASV
Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second like unto it is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments the whole law hangeth, and the prophets.
We even have trouble trying to keep these 2! Thank you Lord for Your Grace and Mercy!
Let’s pray more for God’s help to walk in the Spirit for we do want to please God, Right?
Ephesians 4:1-3 ASV
I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beseech you to walk worthily of the calling wherewith ye were called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; giving diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Love in Christ Pat
