It’s Hard To Confront Sin in Others | Galatians 5:19-6:5
Aaron Gray | August 19, 2018
Who are the people in your life who you trust to give you insight, feedback, and loving correction? How can you learn to listen and trust them more?
Look at Proverbs 6:16-19, Luke 20:47, and 1 John 5:16-17. What does it mean that different sin is to be treated with a different degree of seriousness? How can we grow in wisdom around this idea?
How does the gospel free us to both give and receive correction in love? How has Jesus shown us his love and grace even when we were still sinners?
Have you found yourself upset by non-Christians not behaving in godly ways even though they don’t have faith in Jesus? How can your message to them be less “behave” and more of grace?
Pray that God would help you to receive correction well, and that it would shape how you share correction with others.
Pray that God would help you to show the non-Christians in your life that the gospel is not simply a message of “behave and act right.”
Go to someone who loves you and has your best interest in mind and ask them this question: “what is one thing that I can take to Jesus for repentance, growth, and change?” Consider asking more than one person, but no more than three.
