Beyond Sunday – Tough Topics: Same Sex Relationships

Did the Tough Topics series hit you square in the eyes? This series was a great reminder to rely on God instead of my own understanding and to love others. As Christ Followers that means I follow. Making a conscious decision to “follow” means don’t take the lead – take your worries and cares directly to God….and it means do what Christ did. Love others.

It’s about as simple as that. “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” And when we do that (which we tend to fail at quite often) – – “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples (Christ Followers) if you love one another”

The song “By Our Love” we listened to on Sunday has been playing thru my mind since Sunday – – over and over – the line: And they will know us by our love… is a simple reminder that others are watching. Whether we are in a discussion about same sex relationships, greed, drunkards, slanderers or swindlers – let’s keep the main thing, the main thing. Do others know you by the way you love them?
