Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
“…excommunication is really nothing more than the recognition of a state of affairs which already exists, for the unrepentant sinner has condemned himself already,…”
Titus 3:10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 Reject a factious man after a first and second warning,
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for blessing Your servant with discernment and a correctable spirit. Continue to bless and protect my heart and soul and guide this tongue in encouraging my brethren towards a life of obedience. Soften our hearts to hear the difficult truths we so badly need to hear. Continue to test and refine us until we are ready for Your kingdom. Help us to know when our efforts will not do and where we must let go. In Jesus’ name, amen.
