Thanks for reminding us of what we have committed to be as a church and offering us helpful ways of living it. Special thanks for the call to be a gospel based culture rather than a law based culture. The elder brother posture has too often been our posture. May we repent and change as we are so quick to call others to do so that our churches become places of grace that welcomes and loves all sinners.

One question, these articles are dated June of 2023, why are we reading them in January?

Amen brother. I have challenged others to employ the pastoral route but sad to say not much has changed. People easily say, Yes, we should, and promptly forget it.

Keep up challenging all of to practice biblical love.
