    Thus those who do not have the Spirit of Christ are none of his.

    And the spirit means we will love. If we love not, we have not that Spirit you speak of.

    Love is the fruit you will see.

    God is love, so those who are born of him love because they will be like him.

    Hi t8,

    Matt 16

    Blessed are you , Simon Bar-Jonah, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but my Father, Who is in heaven.

     

    Peter had been taught by the Spirit of Christ and this is the foundation of the Body of Christ.

     

    As Romans 8 says

    If anyone does not havethe Spirit of Christ he does not belong to him

     

    1cor 12

    For by One Spirit we were all baptised into one Body

    True Nick. But without love you are nothing. A revelation of this you might need if you disagree.

    Hi T8,

    What angry attack on me are you launching now?

    Back to basics till you hear the Spirit.

    Love is not anger. But love can express itself in anger for sure. The attack is an attack of truth and correct reading of the scripture. If you love the truth, you will not see an attack, you will see an opportunity to be better.

    It doesn’t matter what you think of me whether rightly or wrongly. If you have not love, then how can you be born of God?

    So little time for all of us, and much to do. Why waste the time you have by letting pride stop you from being better.

    Who will you hurt in the end? Me? No, I tell you not me.

    Hi,

    The rock the church is built on is the Spirit that manifested in Peter.

    The spiritual rock that is the teachings of God’s Spirit.

    The same rock that Moses struck in the desert.

    The rock that wise men build on.

    Love is the fruit of the Spirit. No love, no Spirit. This is how we know those who are born of God.

    We also know the enemy. He condemns. He never encourages people to be patient, loving, and kind.

    If we have eyes, we see the fruit and if we are wise, we know the root.

    Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God. True faith’s understanding sits on this.

    Love also loves the truth and all other things of God.

    Our lives are too short to hold onto pride. We need to drop that otherwise we have to take it with us when we meet God.

    To all….The power of God working through love in the mind of those called, is what builds the church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. According to Jesus.

    Peace and love to you all and yours. ……gene
