We cover a wide range of topics in this one from practical advice for new believers, drinking from the fount of knowledge and understanding well, the extremes and dangers of complacency and arrogance in following Christ and how your actions (as God’s representative) affect other’s that are made in His Image.
We also tackle what we see as a growing problem in the Body of Christ in the second half of this episode, namely, unnecessary division and a lack of genuine Christian love. Going through 1 Corinthians 13, Josh and I expound what “love” looks like in our walk with not only Christ, but others who we engage with on a daily! Can we, who are created in God’s Image, honestly love a God who we cannot see if we do not love other Image bearer’s who are right in front of our eyes?! 1 John 4:20 is pretty clear... so we remind ourselves of what the Biblical definition of love is and how to begin to apply that characteristic of every believer in Christ faithfully!
Don’t let a wealth of knowledge and understanding become a stumbling block.
Pick and choose your battles. Don’t divide unnecessarily.
Shoot for confidence, not arrogance.
Never repay evil for evil, but love you’re enemy.
Don’t spend too much time looking at yourself. Examine yourself but keep your eyes on Jesus.
