When you are down, turn your thoughts to what you can do for others.
In your suffering Christ is with you.
The Church must expect cultural and social push back. What is much more harmful to the Church is dissension from within.
In the fog of war there are many casualties caused by friendly fire.
The Church does more damage to itself than it receives from external forces.
We are sometimes so busy messing with each other that we lose sight of what God is trying to do.
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit; One God, gave His Church a seat at the table and invited us into Oneness with Him. [See Acts chapter two.]
The Church was born to reflect the same unity that is in God.
Check yourself before you wreck yourself-- before you wreck all of us.
Tenderness and compassion before
meanness and a critical spirit.
Pastor Johnnie Blair
