There is so much discension in the Churches. Protestant and Catholocism. This needs to end. There needs to be unity in the body, we need to be united in purpose and thought and Spirit. Ok, i hear people arguing about interpretation of scripture and this and that, and people rebutting people in resentful ways, and all that which is not of the Kingdom. Now i struggle with some of these same things, but im making a call to you all, right now. We need to pray for the Grace, and that the love of Christ would overflow through us. We need to LOVE. All the wisdom, and knowledge and teaching is NO GOOD without LOVE. Why are you correcting the person? Is it to be right? Or is it to encourage and build them up in faith. Dont argue about endless geneologies, we dont need to worry to much about false teaching, teh Spirit will teach us, if we are walking the Lord. I get caught up in. trying to prove someone wrong, i get proud, and vain, and concieted. We all fall short. Listen im asking for your help. im asking that you please pray for one another. i struggle with pride,vanity,conceit,selfish ambition,lust. Let me know how i can lift you up in prayer.
Honestly Jesus didnt shed His blood ona cross so that we coulda rgue about interpretations, and legalities. These things can be argued forever and ever, and still nothig would get accomplished. Jesus died so that we could know the love of our Creator, so that we could believe in Him, and have a relationship with God. Jesus died so that by showing us love first, we might also love one another. That was His command.
I ask you, if you were on trial for being a Christian, is there enough evidence to find you guilty? Have you turned from your sins and turned to the Lord? Do you walk with the Lord and follow Him. Do you read His word? Do you have fellowship with your brothers and sisters?
Yours in Christ
