The New Testament teaches three specific things how individual Christians in the Church were to conduct themselves;
· Love one another as Christ loved us
· How men and women treat each other outside of marriage
· How husbands and wives treat each other inside of marriage.
These three basic human relationships were to serve as a witness to those outside of the church as an evangelistic tool. How we deal with each other have ramifications for how we conduct ourselves spiritually before a lost world. We as the church have failed in these three basic relationships. We need someone to step unafraid from the background and face down criticism and perhaps ridicule, and yes, even persecution from the self-righteous that continue to lead the church away and who resist the necessary course corrections in these final days. Who will be willing to confront the issues head-on in order for the world to know Christ? Are you as part of His church ready for the second coming of our Lord? Would you be willing to face discomfort and ridicule if you knew that God had called you to such a fate? What discomfort are you willing to endure for the cause of Christ?
