The Scripture that says Jesus had to be made perfect, that there was a time when something was missing. How did he become perfect? What does his perfecting mean for us?
Nothing about the Spirit of Christ lines up with the values of the world. This is arguably most obvious when it comes to the meekness and lowliness of Christ.
Paul\’s letters to Timothy and Titus contain five \”trustworthy statements\” that not only sum up some of the critical messages of those letters but of the entirety of Christian belief. In the midst of the unreliability of the world, these statements give God\’s people something to stand on.
Those that believe in the glory of God\’s faithfulness must themselves become faithful to him and like him.
What is \”good\”?
Kindness is unassuming, yet it is core to the life of the person living by the Spirit of God.
It isn\’t the mighty and most noble that do the great things of God. It is those that quietly serve sometimes without being noticed or known by anyone but God himself.
Every group of people requires leadership. The trick for God\’s people is to lead and be led in the way he prescribes rather than the way the world would suggest.
God wants his saints to operate together as local bodies, not as independent actors in the world. It is essential that God\’s people learn how he wants his churches to work together.
There are many sufferings in the world and temptations to the flesh for anger. People filled with God\’s Spirit keep suffering long like the Lord himself, patiently enduring trials and troubles.
