A Response to Sin


Galatians 6:1 (AMP) Brothers, if anyone is caught in any sin, you who are spiritual [that is, you who are responsive to the guidance of the Spirit] are to restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness [not with a sense of superiority or self-righteousness], keeping a watchful eye on yourself, so that you are not tempted as well.

This must be a new scripture, right? Surely this hasn't been in the Bible for a few thousand years, I mean, based on how I see the church at large respond to a brother or sister in Christ that has fallen into sin, this is new news. When we see the called and anointed of God make the biggest mistake of their lives our response has been to inform the world of their sin, kick them while they are down, find more dirt to pull up out of the ground and toss it on them. We may give some grace to the new Believer's because they are still learning, but seasoned Christians, nah, we choose our OWN sins in response to theirs! Stop falling for this scheme from the pit of hell! When someone falls into sin, history tells us that we in turn do the following: gossip, slander, become full of pride, become judgmental & critical and worst of all - we omit the most important commandments - love God and love your neighbor as yourself.

Church, we don't have time to play games like the rest of the world. We have to BE the church, we have to show the world what they are missing! The power and presence of God should be all over the Bride of Christ! What is holding you back from fulfilling your call to share the Gospel? Are you living among the thorns and weeds? Uproot all the negative drama from your life and step into what you were created for! Is your news feed full of genuine friends who uplift you or just people you so desperately want to become? God created you unique - no one can be a better YOU than you! If you are the one caught up in sin, find a trusted friend to turn to or a leader in your church. The quickest way back into the arms of your Father is through repentance. I can love you but God loves you more. God, may our hearts break for what breaks Yours - send us the hurting and broken who desire change so You may be glorified. Amen.

Luke 10:27-28 (TPT) The religious scholar answered, “It states, ‘You must love the Lord God with all your heart, all your passion, all your energy, and your every thought. And you must love your neighbor as well as you love yourself.’” Jesus said, “That is correct. Now go and do exactly that and you will live.”
