For the Sake of Others: Serve Christ Only
November 1, 2020
If you’ve visited Florida or any other southern state, you know it’s not unusual to see signs giving this warning: “Beware of Alligators.” They are posted for your safety. They are posted to keep your eyes alert in order to recognize a potential danger. Paul posts a similar sign at the beginning of Philippians Chapter 3 – “BEWARE of dogs, BEWARE of evil workers, BEWARE of the circumcision.” His sign could simply have said: BEWARE OF THE RELIGIOUS SPIRIT! The passion behind Paul’s words to the church at Philippi is the same as the church at Gingrich’s today. We, too, must beware of the religious spirit!
