What does God say to the follower of Jesus about being tolerant with others, and what does God say about the judgement of others?
As followers of Jesus we are under the authority of God, which includes being under established human authority. Our obedience and demeanor are matters of holiness and mission.
Jesus gave his entire self for us, so we can give our entire selves in love to him.
Two questions seem to flow out of this. Is God big enough to fix my big problems? Is God enough for me, if my big problems don’t get fixed?
We all endure pain and struggle; some is temporary or situational pain, while other is long-term or lifelong pain. How can we who follow Jesus find hope in this world, and become better messengers of hope to others?
How do we as Christ-followers deal with the reality of sin, the calling of holiness, and the tendency to be hypocrites, in a way that is honest and glorifies Jesus?
Have you ever felt like something in you was so beyond your own “capacity to fix” that it felt hopeless?
What does the Bible say I need to “do” to follow Jesus? Is there a minimum? Are there any requirements? What does it mean to have Jesus as Lord of my life?
God is loving, so He gives us His righteousness through faith in Jesus.
Are all sins equal, or does God treat one sin as greater than another? Are some people more guilty than others in God’s eyes?
