This is a cry to all Christians. We need to ensure we aren’t acting like the Pharisees. Paul warns us to “avoid such men as these.” This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t pray for them, however. We are to be “salt and light” to this world.
Later, we go more into the background of this Epistle. For now, let’s look at how it applies to you. We should take a self-inventory. We should ask, “Am I acting like a Christian or am I being a Christian?” I can’t emphasis this enough, but if you’re failing in any area…you can change. Now is the time to be the Christian you should be.
Let your love bring more people to the loving arms of God. Yet, do not compromise your Christian values. We can’t change people or “save” them. That’s God’s job. Our job is to live Christ-like and to introduce God to them.
Go back over the notes (the ones you took at church on Sunday) and embrace those words. Ask your minister, pastor, Christian friend to help you with anything you don’t understand. If you can’t do that, shoot me an email and I’ll try to help you also. After all, we’re in this together.
Bless you and stay “in” form. In the form of Godliness, not ungodliness
