Fighting For (Not With) Each Other

Fighting For (Not With) Each Other

Paul tells the Galatian church, "if you bite and devour each other, beware that you don't consume each other." Today, not just in our country, but in our churches, we are biting and devouring each other. We are lobbing verbal grenades and shaming anyone who doesn't see or believe things exactly as we do. Christians are turning on other Christians in their own churches, and many claim it is for the glory of God. But Paul makes clear that simply taking a stand for righteousness ("I follow Paul! I follow Christ!") does not mean we are actually brining glory to God. Our attitudes, words, and treatment of others is of paramount importance. Our opinions, words, attitudes, thoughts, and actions towards others ought to be a reflection of how Christ deals with us, His bride, and how we would hope to also be treated by others. Paul tells us, "you could have all the answers, wisdom, knowledge, and faith known to man, but if you don't have love, you are nothing."

May God have mercy on His church as we aim to be salt and light in this dark world, not just simply speaking truth to one another, but speaking truth in love.
