Which Group Do You Belong To?

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

There are five groups in every church.

 

There are the wolves.

 

I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Acts 20:29 New International Version

 

These devils lurk about waiting to see a weak moment and pounce on you as they are very judgmental and condemning. They do this to stand on a pedestal to make themselves look righteous at the others expense. They are the most dangerous and destructive of them all. They drive more people from Christ than any of Satan’s minions could ever dream of

 

Then there are the groupies.

One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.” 1 Corinthians 1:12 New International Version

 

Now even though this refers to denominations it also includes those groupie clubs.

 

 

They are the ones that form little groups and it is an exclusive membership. If you are not say a new mother you are not welcome in their tribe. If you are a new member of a church they ignore you if you try to go over and talk with them. In short, they are the snobs.  They are responsible for one time visitors refusing to return for a second visit and indeed turning their back on Christ.

 

Next comes the tongue wagers.

Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. Proverbs 26:19 New International Version

These are the deadly parrots that lurk about listening in to other conversations to devour any tidbit they can. Once they grab hold of it they burn the telephone lines up telling anybody and everybody stupid enough to listen to them. They usually mix in a little bit of the truth with a whole bunch of lies. If this can cause trouble for the unfortunate victim all the better. When confronted about their filth they behave like innocent little lambs. They are relationship destroyers. Guard well what you say about them. They destroy more relationship and cause more hard feelings between members than any wrecking ball could to any building.

 

 

Then, comes the ones that are the minority but should be the majority in every church.

 

They are the Christians.

 

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22 New International Version

 

They are the ones that welcome any newcomers and make them feel at ease and, are always polite and respectable. Before the service they like to share what Jesus has done in their live the past week. After the service they like to talk about what was being said in relation to their walk with Christ. They are the ones that build up the church, both local and international. I am very honoured to be a member of this group and enjoy greatly being with them every opportunity I can.

 

The wolves are usually always attacking these minorities and are responsible for driving them many of them from the church.

 

Which group do you belong to?

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) bless me to always conduct myself in thought, word and deed as a respectful child of Yours and guide me to fellowship with other brothers and sister so we can and will worship You in a harmony of love and joy. I sincerely ask this in the name of he who taught His disciples how to fellowship both amongst themselves and You Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Is He Preparing Them? Part Two

SPINNING PINK ON GREEN

Please read Deuteronomy 27& 28

In this article we will talk about a relative that loves to gossip and cause trouble. For years she played her wicked little game of being a terrible gossip and was in her most glee when she was causing fights. She then acted innocent.

People tried to council her but she is stubborn and proud (the two always go together) and refused to listen.

In one incident she caused such a terrible fight that it caused a nervous breakdown and that almost lead to suicide with one of her relatives.

First she lost her husband who was her cohort (he was just as bad) and still refused to repent.

Next she lost her eyesight yet still was unrepentant.

After that she became crippled and then lost her dog which was like her favourite child.

How stupid and stubborn people can be amazes me.

Do you think God is breaking her of her stubbornness and arrogance to prepare her to reconcile with her child when she see’s him for the first time in many years?

If you have committed a serious offense against someone may I strongly suggest you repent less you suffer Gods vengeance.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Shepherd) please guide me to be open and obedient to Your wise guidance in my life so as to not have to experience difficult and painful experiences to discipline me.

I meekly request this in the name of He who taught His best lessons to His disciples through difficulties Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
