February 2, 2020 - Thank you Riley for filling the pulpit this week.
Rich relationship with others
e can not do life alone, you need to take these words as commandments not as suggestions.
Rule #1 find your battle buddy(s)- Colossians 3:14 Someone who you need to have by your side at all times for safety and sanity.
Rule #2 know your commander's intent.- Luke 10:27. A commander's intent is a simple outline of what the plan is. It is what unites people to meet a common goal.
Rule #3 Don't leave the wounded behind. John 15:13. When we see spiritually wounded church family members, and simply dismiss their problems, that is leaving them in the battlefield wounded.
Offer your support, ask what you can do, and then do it. We aren't alone out there James 1:22 Do what it says!
The man went and reported to the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and forgiving one another if anyone has a grievance against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you are also to forgive. 14 Above all, put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.
He answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,” and “your neighbor as yourself.”
No one has greater love than this: to lay down his life for his friends.
But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
