5. Evil thoughts
6. Substance abuse
7. Ugly language and silly talk
It’s embarrassing. It’s hurtful. It might make you think less of each other.
But you know what… who cares?
If we really want to grow and make a difference in our own lives and the lives of others then we have to be open, honest, and transparent with each other. Let’s tell each other what is REALLY going on in our lives. No one is perfect. EVERYONE is dealing and struggling with something in their own lives and we don’t have to face it alone. We can overcome the sins in our lives with each other’s help but only if we are willing to obey the command from James. Confess openly, honestly, and transparently.
I’m so thankful for several people here at NHCOC that have recently come to me to talk about what they are going through. Not just the physical ailments that we all face from time to time but the sin sick spiritual struggles of real christians. That takes courage. Remember you need to talk to each other. Here at NHCOC we are blessed with many people you can talk to. Of course I’m available but we have other ministers and shepherds and many others with which to be open, honest and transparent.
I love you,
