I just wanted to say that I have concerns with how we teach, live, etc. I have concerns with how I live, teach, etc. At the end of the day we are frail, easily led astray as sheep, and prone to wander. And yes, we must remain in the Word, prayer, and fellowship indeed: as we are exhorted to for our ultimate good by The Loving God.
However, our Great Shepherd is not uninformed of this fact, and loves us nonetheless! I do not wish to come across as “cold,” and “dark” or woeful and pessimistic. I seek to exhort, and encourage my fellow brothers and sisters, to point to the Lord Jesus Christ. In the beginning and end it’s all Him.
Father God thank You so much for Your love, mercy, grace and care. We love You and pray You guide, lead, and direct in Jesus’ holy name. amen
