What should be our attitude when confronting those who are in the world or those who are not as mature as we are in the faith?
Any time we feel that God is pushing us to confront another Christian’s behavior we must remember that we too are broken and will always be in need of God’s continual grace. Often times those who are acting out do not realize the impact that sin has on our lives and on those who are witnessing such behavior. To approach someone, ask permission of the person, pray and with gentleness and respect talk out your concern.
- 1 John 3:13 “Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you.
- 1 John 4:7-12 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and His love is perfected in us.”
