LMA Seven Principles
LMA Seven Principles LMA Principle #4 Reach Out to the Body for Help. In many ways, this is why Jesus built the Church to be the ultimate support group. It is in many instances, but “self-righteousness and legalistic beliefs” hinder the “proper attitude” required to be a mentor and sponsor. Seek others in the Body that are “accepting and forgiving” and have similar problems, i.e., addictions and compulsions. The Divine Mystery Colossians 1:24 “I can even celebrate the sorrows I have experienced on your behalf; for as I join with you in your difficulties, it helps you to discover what lacks in your understanding of the sufferings Jesus Christ experienced for his body, the church.” Seek others in your worship community that have and understand the same issues that you struggle with……’BE’ a helper and ‘BE’ helped……You are ‘forgiven’…..so, ‘BE’ a ‘forgiver’ ……. 2 Timothy 2:24 (TPT) For a true servant of our Lord Jesus will not be argumentative but gentle toward all and skilled in helping others see the truth, having great patience toward the immature. ‘BE’ gentle as you learn and teach the ‘truth’; the unconditional love of God…… Enough said…..
