How do we see others who are currently not following Jesus? Do we have compassion or are we quick to issue judgement?

As Part 3 of the Litmus Test series, this week’s message “Credibility” offers a good standard for determining what it looks like for us to follow Jesus. What proof or evidence is there that someone is truly a follower of Jesus? The “fruit of the spirit” offers some helpful guidance. Key Scriptures: John 15:5-8 (NLT), Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT)
Key texts: Philippians 2:5-9 (NIV) 2 Corinthians 13:14 (NIV)
How do you want to see? How do you want to be seen? Let’s start 2020 by choosing to see and be seen the ways they are intended. Key Scripture: John 9:1-3, 6-16, 35-41 (NLT)
