Good Morning April 28

One of the gifts of God’s Spirit in I Corinthians 12 is the gift of distinguishing between spirits, or discernment. This is a vital gift for  today, not only for listening to the general media, but for the “spiritual truths” that are frequently presented to us. Especially in our politically correct society. We are called to seek God’s wisdom and discernment in all that comes to us. That means staying firmly rooted in the Scriptures, and in our orthodox Christian faith. The Apostles Creed is a basic statement of our faith, and along with the Nicene Creed states clearly what we believe as Christians. Those “truths” we hear that don’t conform to our faith must be rejected. That doesn’t mean that we reject people. We listen and care for all in the love of Christ. But we must have a solid basis for our own faith from which we can share and serve others.
