Attitude of the Righteous

Our ministry is to reach out to the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to help believers be equipped with a solid knowledge of the Word of God, the Bible, and be encouraged to apply it in every aspect of their daily lives. There are simple truths for these complex times to help people live in a way that brings real spiritual victory to them and more importantly, through the Lord Jesus Christ, glory to God our Father.
 

2 Timothy 2:24-25
And the Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth.

As Paul wrote, we are not to be quarrelsome, always looking for a fight, but we should always be ready to gently correct those who oppose the love and the word of God which we bring into every place we go. Peter, who had drawn his sword to defend Jesus the night He was taken and was corrected by the Lord, {Jn.18:1-11} was surely in complete agreement with Paul's statement as he wrote that we always be ready to give an account for the hope we have in Christ with gentleness and reverence. {1Pt.3:15}
 
We should not be trying to win debates but rather to have a great desire to win souls. The children of God are to remember that our warfare is not against flesh and blood {Eph.6:12} for our adversary is the devil. {1Pt.5:8} And as in any battle—and it is a battle, not with the person who challenges you—we have to be properly equipped and use the proper weapons!

We have to 'put on the whole armor of God' {Eph.6:13} It should go without saying, but I will say it in any event, Solomon with his God-given wisdom wrote, “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise makes knowledge acceptable, but the mouth of fools spouts folly.” {Pr.15:1-2} He also wrote that the mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life.

We need to share, to proclaim, the good news of the gospel. It surely would seem obvious that all of the TV news, radio stations and newspapers have the 'bad news' well covered—and as we can easily see they don't bring life. You and I are ambassadors for Christ, the Prince of Peace {2Cor.5:20} and need to bring people good news from the Kingdom. We need to tell people of God's love—and just as importantly, we need to show them God's love in the way we deal with them. They must see real love which has the power to lead them to the cross, which is the very definition of the word love! We know love by this, “We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us” {1Jn.3:16}
 
“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; ....”
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
 
WE LOVE BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US

7 Churches of Revelation - Part 19 - Thyatira--Verses 2:26-29

The end of this letter is about being faithful to the end and avoiding speculation and conjecture. It is about getting understanding from the revelation that we've been given..
