Good morning all,
The word of the day is “careful.” Paul knew a thing or two about what it took to be a constant minister for the Gospel. In the early days a lot of dissention among Xtians occurred because of the certain rules, regulations, and rituals attached to an obedient life in Christ. Now, that the peeps wanted to follow the will of God was all good, but to the extent of craziness and fighting within the church… well, that is just absurd!
“Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol’s temple, won’t he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols?”
~1 Cor. 8:9-10
My question is: how to you live your life in accordance to God’s law? There are a lot of brothers and sisters in Christ out in our churches, schools, and society that need good role models. You can, and should be, that role model. And if you are on the other side of the coin and feel like the newer and more inexperienced Xtian then I encourage you to find others that you know to be strong in the Lord. My prayer is that we as God’s peeps give others a reason to believe that a life with JC is the way to go. Be careful to understand that others are always watching you to see if you example is worth following… is it?
Praying for you,
