‘When people sin you should…
denounce them from the pulpit?
talk about them in whispers, ‘just for prayer?’
give them Meaningful Looks. IKNOWWHATYOUDIDYOURAT.
think about what they did until you get really really angry and then go for a run.
thank God you’re not That bad?
does Paul say this:
‘When people sin you should
forgive and comfort them, so they won’t give up in despair. You should make them sure of your love for them’
(2 Cor 2:7-8).
Isn’t this Brilliant?
It’s Bible TNT. If we lived it in our churches, it would blow the roof off.
Is there anything more powerful than being shown grace when you expect condemnation? A kiss when you steel yourself for a slap?
That’s the gospel. That’s the kindness that leads to repentance.
