- Please pray for me fam as it relates to my 12 year old son. He lives w/ his mom and her husband, and theirs is a Godless household (in terms of Jesus Christ being absent). I need prayer that the Lord would grant me the grace to lean on Him and trust Him with my son. Over the years I've really tried to influence my son w/ the Gospel, and he loves CHH; but he's in public school and just a discouraging situation for me.......Pray I TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY TRUST JESUS so that I will be able to rest in Him instead of my efforts to affect change.......and pray for the salvation of my son, his mom, and stepdad....
That's gotta be rough, bro. I definitely will keep that in my prayers concerning you, man. It's situations like this one where the doctrine of God's sovereignty is truly comforting.
It's true that doctrine divides. It's also true that love unifies. The unity we have in the faith is rooted and grounded in truth and love. Remove truth (right theology and doctrine) from the mix and you have less than Biblical unity. Remove love and you have no unity. Love causes us to seek truth and share that truth with others so that we become more unified. God is truth, and as we are more acquainted with His truth, the closer we are to Him, and the closer we become to each other
