Manna from John
(ESV) John 3:19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God."
The non Christians in church are often easy to figure out, not that you know for sure, but as spiritual fruit inspectors, you don''t see much fruit. Of course you never really know, but that's not our job, to pass judgement.When people either don't do anything or don't do anything without seeking recognition, you have to wonder. People who won't do any "behind the scenes" work make you wonder. People who say the most beautiful prayers on Sunday then know all of the nasty jokes on Monday make you wonder. I am not at all saying that you distance yourself from anyone, God calls us to love everyone, but pray for them, talk to them about the Lord and his beautiful grace. Also talk to them about sin, because of where we live there are a lot of good religous folks who don't know Jesus from the man in the moon. Until someone sees their separation from God, they can't see their need for Jesus.
I pray you have a blessed Lords Day,
