Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

March 30, 2011 (obeying)

obeying the laws of Christ

“This commitment to total obedience does not
mean a mere negative avoidance of evil practices.
It also means positively obeying God’s commands.
We cannot say that someone is a true Christian
just because he is not a thief, liar, blasphemer,
drunkard, sexually immoral, arrogant, cruel or fierce.
He also has to be positively God-fearing,
humble, respectful, gentle, peaceful,
forgiving, merciful and loving.
Without these positive qualities,
he is not obeying the laws of Christ.”
- Jonathan Edwards
