Problem Solving God's Way
Do you value Christ and desire to lead your church effectively? Consider this, if we do not get a grasp on our problems and then be committed to solve them, we will fail our church and disappoint our Lord and Savior!
Pride is defined as the attitude that oneself is superior to others, even to the extent of the regarding of others with contempt as if they were unworthy of any relation or interaction with them. Pride shows the basic thinking "I am better than you are!"
What is the character in your heart and in your church? Knowing and dealing with this is the quintessential aspect that will grow or destroy your church!
How to manage gossip and slander in the Church with love and care without destroying the church!
Gossip devastates all the good work previously done in a church! The Bible is directing us to restrain our speech. A wise person controls their tongue; what they say and how they say it. The Bible goes on to say that people who spread gossip have malicious intentions as much as the people who start the gossip in the first place. This malice leads to the destruction of property and persons, just as bad as a fire would destroy a home or a church.
Hiding Gossip Behind Prayer!
Do you hide Gossip behind your prayer requests? Did you know that is evil and manipulative, what God absolutely hates? One of the most despicable things I've ever seen in my ministerial experience was a prayer group spending all their time gossiping and very little time actually in the Word of God and prayer.
Listening to All Criticism!
Do you have a problem with Hypocrisy in your Church? Being and living an honest Christian life should just be a natural endeavor. We, who have been filled with the Holy Spirit, know the Scriptures should have no problem with honest living, yet we do. The entire human race is hypocritical at one time or another, somehow this is our nature, as demonstrated by our history, actions, interpersonal relationships, divorce court and testimony by behavioral scientists. There is perhaps not a person on this planet who has not...
The Extermination that Hypocrisy Causes!
Hypocrisy can become the "Articles of War" within a church and within a community coming against a church! When the average Joe or Joann off the street is polled on why they do not go to church, it won't be long before the word hypocrisy comes up! Why? Why do non-church people have such a negative response to the church and especially to hypocrisy?
The Law from Within
Hypocrisy causes more problems than any other endeavor human or satanic in giving the church a bad name in the world! "They Will Know That we are Christians by our Love." So will they?
Pride; the Destroyer of Humbleness
We must have a firm, forward and moving commitment and trust in His work...
Read Psalm 15 then ask yourself if your faith is more than just fire insurance from Hell?
Faithful to my Lord's commands, I still would chose the better part; Serve with careful Martha's hands And loving Mary's heart...
We cannot see the value nor get a grasp of the promises of God until we surrender our pride and Will to Him. Make the determination to be His and do not allow your self-will to be in His way! Allow Christ to take you beyond your hopes and dreams (John 3:5).
