“…the knowledge of the direct, active, immediate leading of the Spirit is not sufficient. Individual guidance must yield to corporate guidance. There must also come a knowledge of the direct, active, immediate leading of the Spirit together. ”
~Celebration of Discipline, p. 175

“For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us…”

Contrarians Guide to Knowing God

October 13, 2019 – Pastor Ryan Emmons
A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God #1: Leave the Rules Behind

Genesis 1:26-31 ; Romans 14:1-13

創 世 記 1:26-31 ; 羅 馬 書 14:1-13

For further thought and reflection:

1. Where do you draw the line for tolerance when it comes to the differences in other believers?  Where is the line that you feel others have drawn against you?

2. Genesis 1 tells us that we all bear the image of God. How does that inform your experience of giving and receiving grace?

“Therefore, accept each other just as Christ as accepted you so that God will be given glory.”                                                                        ~ Romans 15:7 (NLT)
所 以 , 你 们 要 彼 此 接 纳 , 如 同 基 督 接 纳 你 们 一 样 , 使 荣 耀 归 与 神                                                                                                                  ~ 羅 馬 書 15:7 (CUVS)
