“We give no opportunity for stumbling to anyone, so that the ministry will not be blamed.”
2 Corinthians 6:3 HCSB
While we are made blameless before God but the blood of Jesus, if our behavior causes other believers to stumble, the cause for Christ IS hurt. Many unbelievers are turned off by the self-indulgence of so-called Christians. One holiday song pokes fun at a Christian praying for a swimming pool; “I can use it, Lord, as a witnessing tool.”￼ In all seriousness, when we became new creatures in Christ, we were released from our slavery to stuff, from our fleshly desires for more, more, more. We are free now to say “no” to that which hinders the faith, whether it be over-eating, hoarding, obsession with social media, shopping…
As we come upon the holiday season, what do you need to take a sabbatical from to do a spiritual re-set to prepare your heart for worshipping at the feet of the Christ-child?
