WE KNOW YOU

2019 – SUNDAY 30 JUNE

WE KNOW YOU

I am always amused (even annoyed) by people who claim to be your friends – who keep pointing out your faults under the guise – “we know you too well.”
Get rid of them they are not real friends.
The Bible teaches us to do exactly the opposite.

WE KNOW PEOPLE AFTER THE SPIRIT – NOT THE FLESH
God looks at the heart – not the outward appearance.
Know people after their noble intentions – not the weakness of their actions.

WE KNOW PEOPLE
AS THEY ARE IN CHRIST
We are called to see people as they are in Christ. A new creation. His divine handiwork.
Call them by their divine names and you will be their friend.

WE KNOW PEOPLE
AS WE WANT TO BE KNOWN
Judge people the way you would want to be judged.

WE KNOW PEOPLE
BY THEIR FRUITS
Truth is – people are known by their fruit. You can choose to know people by their fruit – and not their thorns.

WE KNOW PEOPLE
BY THEIR NEW BEGINNINGS
When a person repents of a fault or failure – we must look with them to a new beginning. However!
No repentance – no new beginning in Christ.
No sorry – no saviour.

WE KNOW PEOPLE
BY THEIR CROWD
Look closely at the people closest to the person.
Losers hang with losers.
Winners hang with people of faith.

WE KNOW PEOPLE
BY THE CAUSE THEY SERVE
We are not saved to be served. We are saved and called to serve the cause of Jesus Christ.
See what a person serves and you will see their god.

IT IS NOT WHAT YOU KNOW – BUT WHAT YOU SAY – THAT MAKES YOU A REAL FRIEND.
