October 18, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
Everyone has times when things don’t go according to plan. Responses can range from quick confident adjustment to devastating paralyzing emotional trauma. What is the believer to do in a world that is constantly changing? How are we to respond to our sovereign God who changes up our plans on a moment’s notice? There are answers in the scriptures that lead us to confident, courageous living.
You Are a Blessing and Not a Curse

Within its local gatherings, the Church of Jesus Christ is remarkably diverse in its theological spectrum, understanding of grace, freedom from the Law, general maturity and opinions of other believers. Since it took over 300 years to formally establish our understanding of the divine nature of Jesus Christ at the Nicene Council, we should offer a few years of grace for those less mature than ourselves to have time to grow. Theological understanding develops when human filters are removed, mostly through hard times, to read the Word of God in all its simplicity. In the meantime, the church should work hard to remain a place the tax collector, harlot, leper, broken Pharisee can flee to for compassion, comfort and healing instead of becoming a hardened religious institution quick to discipline and kick out those who fall short of perceived but not real ideals of Jesus Christ instead of working hard to make space for personal spiritual growth.
