III. CHURCH CONCERNS
In our Sunday School series of Biblical Fellowship, we tackled the reality and necessity duty of withdrawing fellowship from those who walk contrary to God’s truth; that it may preserve the honor of God, the maintain the well-being of the church, as well as benefit the wayward in his/her repentant restoration.
In our first service, we were taught to exercise spiritual wisdom and discernment in bringing the gospel to the lost that it will not lead to its trampling, especially by those who persist in rejecting it as we as those who persist in disobedience and backsliding.
In our second service, we were reminded of the greatest struggle of a believer – dealing with remaining sin and the dangers that come with it in our neglect of duty. Let us therefore be all the more be watchful and vigilant in our daily walk, mortifying sin and putting on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us pray for those who will minister the word of God this Sunday. May the Lord give wisdom in their preparation. Let us also pray that there will be no problems in our live streaming.
