With all that is happening around the world with Politics and the coronavirus, what stance should the church take. Pastor Phil gives a message about knowing the peace of the Holy Spirit.
The Church of Corinth had it all wrong. They thought spirituality and maturity were based in how much knowledge one had. The church was full of arguments, jealousy, strife and division. So the Apostle Paul has to bring them back to basics. The “Mind of Christ” has nothing to do with our understanding of worldly wisdom. In fact, the mindset of Jesus isn’t about feeling superior, but about humility. The Mind of Christ, which we are encouraged to grab a hold of, starts when we see ourselves as a Servant to others.
We are great at complicating things. When things become complicated we end up missing the message. The gospel is a message of love but often is presented as performance and moralism. When the message is presented wrong the Author of the message becomes misunderstood. There is a stark difference between Christ like morality and religious morality. Faith was never meant to be about correct behavior and moral merit badges. Faith is always about growing in a dynamic relationship with a God of Love.
This is an election year and because of that division can occur in society as people become fearful of what the future holds. The church is full of so many different perspectives and it is important that we honor the perspectives of others. Where you sit determines where you stand. The church is called to love in spite of our differences. Lets value and protect the unity in the church as we move into this election year.
"Where you sit determines where you stand. Have an eternal perspective so you don't get caught up in the mundane. Look at everything from a heavenly vantage point. Politics are temporary but the Kingdom of God is eternal. Always follow the law of Christ which is the law of love." - Pastor Phil
