This is the type of Christian that God is looking for. One who is fearless, strong, sound, yet loving. We must speak out boldly without any mixture or adulteration. We must be one who is not only willing to be taught by others but also willing to be taught by ourselves.
Someone has said that "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder." I suppose the meaning of this is that various folks will find value in various things for various reasons. Something valuable to one person may be of much less or no worth to another, depending on the taste of persons involved.
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring (Acts 17:28)
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
This verse comes from the birthday of the church. Praising God continues among these people until the trumpet blows. “Having favor with all the people,” however, was very short-lived. What ultimately mattered is that people had it in their power to meet God’s criteria to enter His family. They repented of their sins and were immersed for the forgiveness of those sins.
