AN APOSTOLIC APPEAL - By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: Romans 16:17

There is a constant threat, within the church, that  fractures may develop in the fabric of sound fellowship which  the pure truth engenders. This was of constant concern to the  Apostle Paul as he ministered to the congregations of  believers. The Corinthian church was particularly vulnerable  to the influence of erratic and negative distraction. Their lack  of spiritual maturity prompted the apostle to deliver firm  warnings and admonitions.

"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord  Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there  be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined  together in the same mind and in the same judgment .... For ye  are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and  strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?" (I  Corinthians 1:10, 3:3).

What an entirely different condition existed in the church  at Thessalonica, to whom Paul wrote these words of joyful  confidence: "Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father  and the Lord Jesus Christ. We are bound to thank God always  for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith  groweth exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all  toward each other aboundeth; so that we ourselves glory in  you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all  your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure" (II  Thessalonians 1:2-4). If we would count ourselves equal to  their example, we are properly instructed: "Whatsoeverye do  in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving  thanks to God and the Father by Him" (Colossians 3:17).



How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
