When Christians Act Like The ex-Chain Smoker

March 21, 2011

I just couldn’t help but be drawn in by that title! And it is really a good piece reminding me of the need to be considerate, patient and kind with others who I think don’t get it (then again, maybe I’m the one who doesn’t get it):

“Perhaps it would be helpful to remember that we are never glorified this side of heaven. We still have miles to go before we stand in that ‘to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ’ (Eph. 4.14). And furthermore, anything that we have learned we should praise God for and not pound our chests for. Remember Paul. He did not go ‘ex chain smoker’ on everyone when he contended for the gospel. He was actually loving, charitable, and gracious. This he did without compromising biblical fidelity and a burden for people.”
