A Morning Message Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Categories: Morning Messages

Good Morning! I can’t believe it is Wednesday already!  I was out of the office on Monday and Tuesday so this week is going quickly.  I was back in the office Tuesday afternoon, but still a short week.  I hope you had a great weekend!  We had a great yard sale, great worship, then off to North Platte Sunday evening.  What a great time reconnecting with folks from our first church.  I was in Springfield Tuesday for District meetings and now turning my attention back to SUMC.  A great night in store, come eat and fellowship.  Hope to see you tonight.    Be a blessing to someone today!.

[ Dealing With Sin in the Church ] “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.      Matthew 18:15 NIV

Interesting verse.  How do you help someone out of sin?  I think before you jump in with both feet maybe you should do a little reflection first.  How is your relationship with God?   Have you and are you addressing sin in your life?  We all have it, just a matter of what we are doing about it.  Is what you are concerned about in others really sin, or it is your opinion of sin?  Do you know for a fact or are you making assumptions?  Can you have this conversation as a person that loves and respects them or it is from a judgmental place in your heart?  We get this instruction to act only if our actions are pure in heart.  Remember the that we always need to make sure the plank is out of our own eye, before we address the splinter in another’s eye. Just my thought for today.

Yesterday’s Question: Who is our guest musician at the 11:00am service?   Bob Kraus     Linda Maledy is our winner today.
