If our hearts are right, we will preach the truth in love, not in the critical judgmental spirit, as it is the LORD’s will to save people, not run them out of them church, but to teach them the right foundations to live and base their lives upon.
Jesus never compromised the truth, but He did speak it in love, because He was about His Father’s business and that was, that none would perish and that all would be saved and come into repentance.
It is so easy to become hard-hearted if people allow it. However, the pure in heart have been tested and tried in the fire, having their hearts purified. They have their motives pure and right in alignment with Gods will, heart, and purpose.
Those ones are upon the rock and shall establish His church, for they will teach with the heart of the Father and with much patience until we all come into the unity of the faith.
They will bridge the gap and stop all the division within the church.
They will teach and instruct many in Christ’s righteousness, with the right heart, attitude, and spirit.
Many will depart from their sins and receive Jesus and learn and grow upon He Who is the head, Jesus Christ our LORD.
“And the servant of the LORD must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth,” 2 Timothy 2:24-25.
“And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12.
“I therefore, the prisoner of the LORD, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One LORD, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that He ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love,” Ephesians 4:1-16.
