Grace In = Grace Out

Oct 1, 2023    Joe Shepherd

Why are there so many hypocrites in the church? How come they serve a God that is good yet they cause so much hurt and pain, for those in the church, those that have left and those that are outside. Is the church a hospital where the sick and broken find healing or is it a place where the sick just stay sick but we feel better about being sick because were at church and have "forgiveness".

The church is called to be a conduit of God's characteristics not a filter. Where we willingly accept God's love mercy, grace and forgiveness, but we only give it to others once it has been filtered through our humanity. We are called to give to others the things that we received from God, exactly the way that we received them. Matt 18:21-35
