Word of the Day... March 7, 2013

Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted....... Galatians 6:1
 We should all seek to restore in us the spirit of gentleness, not in a condemning way, because, there but for the grace of God, go every one of us.

Not one of us is so holy or so righteous that we are immune from temptation. We are told to consider ourselves under similar circumstances, knowing that we might be tempted too. How would we like others to treat us if we were tempted?

This isn’t a person who has deliberately turned their back on Jesus. This is someone who has been caught up in the moment and taken captive by the enemy. We are to seek to restore that person in the spirit of gentleness. We are to be like Jesus.

Jesus told us a new commandment I give to you “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

In this behavior, they will know you are Christians by your love. I hope you all have a Simply Heavenly Thursday and that you go out there and give them a little bit of Heaven today…
