Admonishing One Another

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God" -Colossians 3:16

Admonishing is to warn or exhort another.  The people who love you the most will not only teach you the truth but, when needed, will admonish you with the truth as well.  Those who love you the most will also take the time to learn how to admonish a brother or sister in Christ.  Those doing the admonishing need grace as well as those being admonished.  Admonishing is not something most of us like to do or have done to us.  Have you ever been admonished?  It hurts.  But a friend will be willing to admonish you in hopes that you will respond in repentance so that furth damages from sin will not occur.  This is a reason why we need to be a part of a local church that holds up the word of God.  

Grace upon grace,
