Gaining victories: overcoming our own pride and prejudices (5/6)

To accept our neighbour in his otherness and to follow divine advice irrespective of our own ideas … This is another point on our agenda this year, set out by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider.

Fighting evil and overcoming fear and our own weaknesses is the task assigned to New Apostolic Christians for the year 2016. At the beginning of the year, the Chief Apostle issued his motto: Victory with Christ.

Nothing seems more difficult than giving up our own ideas and accepting divine truths. If God’s response to our request for help is different to what we expected, we tend to be offended and withdraw from God or react with reproaches and accusations. The Chief Apostle asks his brothers and sisters to overcome their own pride and accept God’s advice—an ambitious task.
