How can we lead our churches to stand firm & love others well?
One of the best ways to grow a church right now is to be a pastor that speaks truth in love. There is a way to speak on what we believe and speak out on places where the world is pushing us to agree with things we don’t believe in. We don’t come across as self-righteous and people need to see our heart and genuine concern for the world. We can’t pick on specific groups of people.
I’m not going to be mad about it. I’m not going to be mean about it. But I’m not going to move from it.
Read through Nehemiah 9. We have to focus on real repentance, praying, and fasting. We allowed this - it’s not them, it’s us.
