“Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.” 2 Corinthians 1:24

The Message Bible says, “We’re not in charge of how you live out the faith, looking over your shoulders, suspiciously critical. We’re partners …”. Our relationship with other Christians isn’t domineering. We don’t tell others what they should and shouldn’t do, even if we’re trying to be helpful. Instead, we trust God to lead others as we trust him to lead us. Let’s aim to be encouraging and supportive as we work together.
