With so many denominations, so many do’s and don’ts, and so many that believe you must wear this or that…it is important to understand the Bible and forego man-made legalism.
Now I know this is a touchy topic, however legalism has become rampant in today’s churches and is turning away those who need Jesus the most. We are to love our brothers and sisters in Christ, not argue and fight with one another because you do this or I do that.
Mark 3:24 “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand.”
For all of us who love Christ, believe that the Bible is the final Word, and that Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly; than it is of the utmost importance for each of us to be the salt and light of this world. It’s not about what you wear, what you eat, when you pray, what you pray…it is about a deep-loving relationship with our Heavenly Father and accepting Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice to give us the opportunity of being grafted into His amazing love.
We may agree to disagree on some things, but the fundamental root of all Christianity is what’s most important…JESUS! Don’t let the pettiness of man-made legalism hinder people the chance of coming to Christ. God is able to modify anything about a person that HE deems necessary. Let those around you see love and not gossip, truth and not legalism, a helping hand and not a beating down. God is love and for all of us who want to make a difference in these last days, let that LOVE shine through all that you do and welcome those that look different or do different things than you.
This week I’m sharing a funny and remarkable teaching from New Beginnings Church in Texas. Pastor Larry does a fantastic job discussing this very topic and it gives me great pleasure to share it with you. Let Pastor Larry’s sermon enlighten, bolden, and give you the tools you need in order to shine brightly this season. Don’t let church legalism stand in your way any longer. Become who you need to be and become God’s great warrior, loving all those whom you come in contact with. The sermon can be found at https://larryhuchministries.com/archive. It is the Sunday First Service March 5, 2017 Service
Make a difference today and let your love shine!
