Lesson 15 The Commands of CHRIST
Let´s continue to look at CHRIST´s commands for the Christian.
16. Our Love to the Brethren
Sometimes it is harder to love the brethren (other Christians) than it is to love the lost sinner, and yet we are commanded to not only love the brethren, but to forgive them and not be condemning.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Matthew 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Luke 17:4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
17. To Be Perfect
JESUS was in all things perfect. As Christians we must daily strive to be an example of HIS perfection to the world.
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
As Christians we need wisdom from GOD. This is not the same as human wisdom or knowledge.
Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
