Colson on The Church

The man had style as well as wisdom.  That's for sure.

The man had style as well as wisdom. That’s for sure.

“The church is divinely ordained, but it is made up of fallen people. We are not yet perfect. We are all dying daily, like the apostle Paul, repenting of sin and growing in grace. As diverse individuals who make up the Body, we have many different personalities, interests, passions, functions, and odd habits that may well drive one another to distraction. But we cannot let Satan fan those irritations into full-blown disunity. We must remember God’s great patience with us and, in gratitude for His great love, love one another.”
