How Are Our Churches Marked?
How do we desire to be known?
Are our churches marked with:
Envy, Gossip, Strife, Division, Hate, Malice, Bitterness, Idolatry, and Impurity?
Or are our churches marked with:
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control?
Is this the biblical description of your church? - “If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”. Galatians 5:15
Or is this the biblical description of your church? - “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”. Galatians 6:9-10
I simply close with Paul’s words to the Galatian Church - “So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature.”. Galatians 5:16-17
What are we marked with?
Or better yet - what do we desire to be marked with?
