July 19, 2015 – Be Strong in the Lord

Preached by Rod Benner (00:35).

 

In all we do and within any relationship we must remember that the love and truth of God is to be our motivation for all thought and action.  Within the family, God instructs children to honor their parents. As importantly, fathers are to act towards their children with godly love and wisdom.  Within our community, country and world we must respond with godly love and even godly sorrow and anger when it is appropriate.  A godly love for all that is good and for every one of our neighbors no matter how they are similar or different from us.  A godly sorrow and anger for anything and anyone that calls evil good.  Living the life of Jesus is our calling; to be “little Christs”, “Christ like”, to be Christian.  Living that life is hard and it we must remember we don’t “war against flesh and blood”.
