SUNDAY SERMON ON THE BLOG – DON’T BE A STUMBLING BLOCK.
But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak. - 1 Corinthians 8:8-9.
We have incredible liberty under grace.
However, our liberty never gives us the right to destroy a weak brother or sister's walk with the Lord. Let's use our liberty caringly, especially toward our new brothers and sisters in Christ.
These new Christians need our encouragement; they already have enough stumbling blocks!
Loving Father, I thank you for your abundant grace. Help me by the power of the Holy Spirit, to be an encouragement, and a good example to new Christians, also to those who are weak in their faith. Help me protect my life from being a bad example to others. In the wonderful and mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
