2-18-2019 “That thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God”

The title of this post comes from 1 Timothy 3:15. I am so glad that the Bible is so clear about how the believers are to conduct themselves. As a missionary I pray for the Holy Spirit to bring conviction and godly sorrow to people when the gospel is preached. We long to see the fruit of righteousness being brought forth in people. Many don’t want to listen and turn to the Lord Jesus. Many don’t want to leave their sin behind. You know that after preaching to large crowd the truth about “repentance from dead works, and faith toward God” (Hebrews 6:1), only a few may come back the next week. Oh but how sweet the fellowship will be in that smaller group.
