‘How to maintain unity’ from ‘Touching the Invisible’ by Norman Grubb

April 16, 2015
This evening I read from the booklet, Touching the Invisible by Norman Grubb. I read chapter 8 - How to maintain unity. This is relevant to me because the previous evening, I enjoyed conversation with the Beer-N-Bible group and found myself speaking with great boldness and liberty, the truth as I now know it. And as a result, one gentleman in the group bristled and said I was haughty, because I said I didn’t go to a church building on a regular basis. I was not insulted at all, and my brethren at the table sought to smooth over ruffled feathers as best they could. On my drive home, the Holy Spirit reminded me of His fruits and one in particular - gentleness. I thought I could have been a little more gentle with the chap, and perhaps in future, Spirit willing, I will be. But, and it’s the Holy But (see The Rest of the Gospel: When the Partial Gospel has Worn You Out for the reference), and another reminder from Fred Pruitt’s post today that the gospel is offensive to some, that when truth spoken, clashes with long-held beliefs, then there is this bristling or question asking or some kind of response. When this happens, I know I’ve hit gold and by the reaction I know that their spirit is stirred to ask and respond to my offense. But. And, this excerpt I read aloud tonight is for my benefit, so I may listen again over a few times on my commutes in the next week or so. So I may learn whatever lesson the Spirit wants to teach me about accepting that Christ in me, is working just as well as Christ in my brother, and I should take a lesson from Jesus in Matthew, the plank example, that if want to pick the speck out of my brothers’ eye, I should first remove the tree trunk from mineAt the conclusion of my reading, I share a little of my own story, and how I came to learn that God revealed His son in me.
