Being Right With

The "One-Anothers"
The Bible describes our relationship with other members of the
Body of Christ, manifested in the local church, in terms of
one-another. We have actually done a study on the many times
when we are to love one another, bear one anothers burdens,
and so forth. In our summer study of WeFit, we must particularly
understand that rightness with God also deals with relationships.
Of course, we should be right about the truth and biblical doctrine.
How many times have we been in conservative, fundamental
churches that felt more like a refrigerator of cold formalism than an
incubator of warm-family love resulting in others being born
again? Managed health care often creates frustration. For instance,
rush your bleeding 4-year old to the emergency room, and you will
often hear the question, Where is your insurance card? before
Whats wrong with the child? I understand bureaucracy,
organization, and such matters. God wants you to be right, but also
compassionate.

SENIOR PASTOR

DR. HAYES WICKER

The Holy Spirit wants to produce His fruit in His people. As Leonard
Sweet wrote: Relationship is pivotal to Christian theology, because
God is love, and love is impossible outside of relationships.
Relationships are the ecology of Gods kingdom, the new creation.
We have no choice but to live with, listen to, and learn from one
another. My prayer this summer is that we will deepen our
relationships just like the early church. Just as the soldier ghts for
his pals and an athlete wants to win for his team, so we seek to have
the backs and carry the burdens of our brothers and sisters in
Christ.
A trellis is scaffolding that enables a plant to grow upward and
reach toward the sun. When the plant cant support itself, the trellis
provides reinforcement. Like the trellis, we are supporting one
another in growth. May we follow James exhortation, Receive
with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your
souls as well as to make you pure (James 1:21). After all, when the
Word of God is implanted it can be transplanted into others.
On this Fathers Day weekend, I thank God for all Dads who lovingly
teach Gods Word to their children, who faithfully attend His church,
and who powerfully inuence their world. After all, one another
means family, too!
