“Truth in Love = Growth”

This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.

We live ina word dominated by misinformation and political spin. Outright lies have been used in our culture to create fear, division and heartache!! So how does Christ want us to respond in this politically- charged, lightning-storm of a year?? Eph4:15 “but speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—” Christ is the head of the church, He is the head of the family and in order to grow in Him we need to speak the truth and do it in love!! Honest truth-telling and genuine love are the best answer, and sometimes that means confessing that we don’t have every answer to every complex problem (but I know someone who does- Jesus:)

With all of the political ugliness and accusations, what else can we as the family of God do? Eph 4:32 “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” So much can be solved if we would just be kind to one another! Go out of your way to be kind today! Forgive one another in the same way that we were forgiven!! Take heart beloved, the Holy Spirit is with us!!!
