The Exterior Wall

Last Sunday my husband preached an amazing sermon. It dealt with the idea of Christians building a good exterior while neglecting the interior. I’ve seen many Christians try to build a great exterior wall by comparing others. Be careful not to fall into the comparison trap. I’ve seen people compare themselves to others in things like looks, finances and education. Even recently I witnessed a fairly new Christian ranking the lady soul-winners from what she thought was the “best soul-winner” to the “worse soul-winner.” As soul conscious Christians we should remember that we are not in competition with each other. We are all on the same team with the same goal in mind. When we compare, we are causing division within the church and discouraging, if not ourselves, others. We all have different talents and abilities to contribute to church. Below is the sermon, hope it’s a blessing to you.
