“Men, why are you doing this? We too are only men, human like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them.
What a great definition of discipleship or mentoring. Encouraging people to let go of bitterness, of anger, of hopelessness, to turn from those things and embrace the living God. Its GOOD NEWS. The old bitterness, and grudges are worthless to your life in Christ. They do not add anything, but rather hold you back from life at its fullest. Embracing the God of the universe by turning from those things, is like turning a light on in a very dark place.
