Letters For Living: "Imitating Who?"

Edmund Brooks

The New Testament is full of examples that we are called to follow. In John’s third letter, he actually tells the church not to follow a certain person, Diotrephes’ example. It turns out that Diotrephes is actually inhibiting the work of the church and the work of the gospel. In John’s third letter, he tells us how to respond to people like that and who we should imitate.

“Christian” literally means “like Christ”. Therefore, no Christian can be self-centered because Jesus wasn’t. That’s true of us as individual believers, and as groups or congregations. This Sunday we break from our study of Paul’s letter to the Galatians to remind ourselves of the importance of our congregation being centered on Jesus, and reaching out to the world as he commanded. Join us as we look at how we are doing this, and how we can go further!
