Families run on relationships. If they run on anything else, it's not relationships.
1 Timothy 3:14-16
1 Timothy 1:1-20
"Salvation belongs to our Lord"
We cannot be saved except by what the Lord Jesus Christ has accomplished on the cross.
If there is any other message other than Christ crucified and raised again on the third day; than it is not the message of the Gospel.
Gospel = Good News!
Believers in Christ Jesus belongs to the family of God. We are to live , love and function in our family. The early church did not run programmes; they loved one another and it reflected to the people around them. The early church grew rapidly because believers obeyed the command of the Lord to love one another.
What a family values comes out in how they behave and what they place importance on.
We are called to love one another. We are a diverse family; living in unity not uniformity.
God's family values what God values.
