As I am sitting here this afternoon writing this post I am not feeling very happy with myself. You see this morning in bible study I got upset, now you may be wondering what type of study we are having for it to cause such an issue.
I really don’t want to share what it was technically about but let’s just say it was on questioning the word of God. Not our Pastor or others there just some of our church hierarchy.
Both my husband and I are really passionate about believing and standing on the word of God, and I guess this is why I got upset. I am passionate about women finding their place in Gods order and supporting them. I love giving to people in need and answering God’s prompting on this matter, that gives me such joy.
But none of these things gives me the right to get upset during study. So after church I was able to apologise to our Pastor and other members who were at the study. I was humbled and blessed by their attitude of forgiveness and how they supported me. None was offended, for which I am grateful, but repentance, I felt, was still necessary.
I must remember to keep a foot on my emotions and remember to lead with Gods knowledge and truth.
It is good to be passionate about what you believe in but it should always be presented humbly and respectfully.
James 5:16 Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
