Tolerance and grace allow us to love our brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless how we “feel” about their behavior, words, or deeds ….
Righteousness is God’s desire for us in ALL things. Humbly proceed in His Way in unity and forbearance and love; even as our privilege be known by many, yet accepted by few.
We ought abide always in love; representing the character or Christ in everything we think, do, and say. Forgive without approving or compromise; because if we condone ungodly behavior, in God’s eyes, we sin too …..
Faith hopes the seed of love we sow will bear fruit in God’s perfect timing. Remember, love is kind, patient, and sees no blemish ….
Faith accesses the abundant grace given to proceed in love. The world will say what it will; yet, remain true; the faithful are given the Word to say as led by the Spirit in all circumstances. God knows our heart as the Spirit’s leading corrects our step as we sow in the world.
Abide in peace and pray for each other as God’s finished work is manifest in your brother and sister as He has done a great work in you. Love continues to humbly lift another along the way. Are we our brother’s keeper? Absolutely!
(1 Timothy 1:14-17)
“And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on Him to life everlasting.Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
(James 5:16) “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
(1 Samuel 26:23)
“The Lord render to every man His righteousness and His faithfulness: for the Lord delivered thee into my hand to day, but I would not stretch forth mine hand against the Lord’s anointed.”
“So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily He is a God that judgeth in the earth.”
God bless you …..
God is with us ……
