Church And Family Reformation Handled Poorly - Paul Carrington
How can reformation in the church or family be handled poorly?
Paul Carrington explains in this video that reformation in the church or family can be handled poorly when we as fathers or leaders make changes without any communication. We must communicate the “why” behind what we are asking our family or church to do. We must lay the groundwork and explain why we are making changes. We shouldn’t make changes just for the sake of change.
It does go back to our heart – why are we making changes? If we start without Christ at the center, we will run into numerous problems. We ought to have everything stem out of a love for Christ. Reformation should flow out of a heart to please God.
Ephesians 5:2 (NKJV) – “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”
