* Building the Church
Individuals that build up the church do it from a love for God as well as a love for individuals in the church. There are numerous ways in which we could accumulate the church, but I will just point out a few. We accumulate the church by praying for the church. We are to pray for the leaders of the church. Leaders have a remarkable obligation as well as have to capably handle the entire church. Leaders have a greater liability to God: James warns the saints that very few must be teachers, due to the fact that instructors have greater liability. Additionally, the opponent targets leaders as well as their family. We are to wish all believers, specifically the ones that we could have some challenges with. The Holy bible informs us to bless and also not to curse. Pray for others as you would certainly pray for on your own: if you pray for favor, breakthrough, arrangement, healing and also various other advantages for yourself, after that hope these very same points into the lives of fellow believers.
We develop the church by keeping the unity of the church. We need to be modest and have a right attitude to all followers. All believers are beneficial to God as well as it is our responsibility to offer them as we would certainly want to be served.
* Destroying the Church
We destroy the church when we gossip and talk adversely, also contemptuously, about other followers. Some individuals like to talk about others; they feel empowered to be able to state unfavorable aspects of other people. This is usually fueled by a spirit of satisfaction: we assume that we are better compared to other individuals and that we know more than they do. It is also fueled by a spirit of jealousy or envy. Jealousy generally causes competition, impatience, resentment, rivalry, covetousness, control as well as retaliation. It is additionally based upon deception: persons erroneously think that they are doing the Lord’s job, however really they are doing the adversary’s job.
