Summer Gathering 2018: Moving In The Right Direction
The Body of Christ is moving toward maturity, and maturity takes time. It takes consistent effort. Our walk is one of faith, and faith works by love – expressed in love toward one another. It requires placing value on our relationships and making a radical change in how we reciprocate love. Agape love, God’s love, is demonstrated by what it does. It’s the love that was modeled to us by Jesus.
We are moving in the right direction when we respect, speak well of, serve, and honor one another. When we cut ourselves off from healthy relationships, we move into a place of unfruitfulness, and all that we’ve worked for self-destructs. “Walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:1-3)
