Ministering Life

much more we will be saved in His life

Rom. 5:10

Dealing With Dissenting Concepts

If a brother or sister holds a dissenting concept, you should not try to convince that one to change it. The more you attempt to convince him, the stronger the dissenting concept will be.

Allow The Inner Life To Solve The Problem

The best way to help such a one is to allow the inner life to solve his problem.

Suppose you cut your arm. After applying medicine to the wound, leave the wound alone and let it heal itself. However, if you tamper with the injury, you will only delay the healing.

The life in the body will eventually take care of the wound.

Likewise, the best way to care for a dissenting one is to do nothing. If the problem is left alone, he will sooner or later become dissatisfied with his dissenting.

Minister Life

Instead of correcting him or trying to change him, minister life to him. What the brothers and sisters need is the inward, organic supply of life.

You can minister life to someone without even saying much to him. Simply by looking at him you can transfuse the life into him.

Do not speak to others according to the tree of knowledge. Instead, exercise your spirit to transfuse life from your spirit into them. This life, which is the living Christ Himself, will work within them to transform them inwardly.

Eventually, the inner life will renew their minds and they will be transformed. Then the dissenting concepts will be swallowed up.
