Yesterday, we shared the first truth regarding a Christian being sensitive to another Christian. We noted that we should know there are many needy brothers.
2. Know that there is a difference between what we know and what we do. A great many people know a lot about God and the Bible.
However, right knowledge does not necessarily mean right actions. My computer contains several versions of the Bible, including Hebrew and Greek, yet my computer is neither spiritual nor a Christian.
We must not simply possess an accurate theology; we must also allow an accurate theology to possess us! Our faith must have feet!
3. Know that there is a difference between what we say and what we do. This is called “hypocrisy.” It means being two-faced. God does not bless us for what we say, but for what we do. Are you following through?
Allow me to quickly review… our church must be a sensitive church. We are sensitive to God’s leading by the Holy Spirit and we must be sensitive to our needy brothers and sisters in Christ. However, there is one more area that we must demonstrate and practice with great sensitivity. We must be sensitive to this needy world.
If you have noticed over the past few days, all of our quotes have been about our command to tell others about Christ. We cannot be ashamed!
