Join us today as Pastor CJ share a message entitled When the Crowd Becomes a Church Part 3.
We Need to Be Lovingly Supported
Christianity is not a solo sport.
In a culture where we so quickly say “I’m fine” we are carrying things we were never meant to carry alone.
Galatians 6:2-5 (ESV)
2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
3 For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor.
5 For each will have to bear his own load.
Difference between load and burden?
Burden – Better translated from the original Greek “Heavy Load”
Load – Better translated from the original Greek “Light Load”
Don’t be a burden/leech to other; carry your own load.
BUT when it is too much for you, we are in a relationship together and we need to lean on each other
We Need To Be Honestly Challenged
Confession isn’t just for Catholic
We have to confess to God and to others.
James 5:16 (ESV)
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Today it’s easier to fake it than be honestly challenged
Shame is one one satin’s greatest tools in our lives
Satin is the accuser of the brethren.
Jesus is our advocate.
God is going to continue to put you in Challenging Relationships because you need it.
Will you be genuinely known, lovingly supported, and honestly challenged?
