MORE !!!

I am a lover of the gospel of grace...it is the only message that brings freedom! It is the gospel and the gospel IS the power of God (Rom 1:16)

The longer i am in "it", the more i want to know...I want to know this grace, this multifaceted gospel, this sweet glory...

The more i wallow in "it" the deeper i want to go, the further i know i can run, the higher i believe i can climb...

aah Jesus...!!!

How's this:

2 Corinthians 5
13 - For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. (praise God for the privilege of setting people free with the gospel, but also, praise God for the opportunity of being "besides ourselves")...anyway, that's not my point hahahah,

14 - For the love of Christ controls us... (the what?...the LOVE OF CHRIST...not man)

18 - All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling [3] the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us...

how wonderful...we are given the ministry of reconciliation...which is what?...that God is APPEALING to man, "I am not holding your sins against you!"

Good one Troy!

God does not count our sins against us for sure...

As far as confronting sin in others?

I like the way Steve McVey puts it...check out the link below...

I like it Craig, and I agree.

I've spent some time recently thinking about this issue, and this little article serves as confirmation...nice!

Many people try PREACH behavioural issues, when it should just be ADDRESSED under spirit-lead circumstances and methods, and, like Steve says, in a gentle manner.

Two very important things need to be in place: the revelation of their position (God's Grace...), and a sincere relationship/bridge of love (i.e the right intention; to advance the kingdom, and see the captive set free. And that person must feel that in the confrontation).

loving it!

Nice one buddy, shot!
