Community of Believers

Community is not necessarily uniformity.

For people who believe in Jesus as the Son of God, Savior and Lord; there is a range of expression of that faith.  The Bible is read, interpreted and applied.  It is understandable that we will have some variation in that process of applying Scripture to  our lives.  God works in our lives at different rates, and in different ways.  Who are we to judge another man’s servant?

Believe in Jesus.

Love God.

Love one another.

Yet, the scripture tells us that if we love God, we will keep His commandments.  It is appropriate to interact with each other over the application of the Word.  There are serious consequences for behaviour or beliefs that go too far in the wrong direction.  Dialogue with individuals with whom we disagree, can bring change either to ourselves, or to them, if each other’s position is honestly considered.

Ultimately God is the judge.  May God guide our thoughts, words and deeds, so that they may be pleasing and acceptable in His sight.
