IF YOU ARE WRONG, you are wrong. The committed people of God take correction. David proclaimed, “Let the righteous man smite me, it is a kindness and his reproof is excellent oil”. If we sincerely desire to please our Lord, we will welcome rebuke that convicts us of anything contrary to the holiness of God.
A wise man receives correction. Yet, how do you respond when the righteous cry out against sin and compromise within the church? From what I’ve seen of late, these men and women of God are rejected and despised, spoken evil of and condemned. Instead of support, they are rejected; much the same as the OT prophets crying out to a wicked and stiff-necked generation of Israelites. The American church is in an apostate, lukewarm condition. She is in dire need of being revived; but only repentance will bring revival.
We need “the voice of one crying in the wilderness”. Our attitude toward such servants of God reveals our own spiritual state. This is the prophet’s calling and anointing. You run your race, but support and encourage others in the race they’ve been given to run. We will all give an account to the Master. How you respond says more about you and less about them. “I have proclaimed righteousness In the great assembly; Indeed, I do not restrain my lips, O LORD, You Yourself know.” Psalms 40:9 #runyourrace
