The Word demonstrates that we must have balance in our lives. One instance that I came across recently that spoke of this to me is in Mark 6.

And they went out, and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them. Mark 6:12,13

The preached against sin and also went about healing and casting out devils. It seems that too many in Christianity tend towards one extreme or the other. They want to preach the Truth, but fail to enact it. Others want to show love by physically being in the community and doing works, but fail to tell them the truth or repentance.

As The Church of God we must make sure that we do BOTH. We must preach the Word unwavering, but the preaching must be backed up by God to confirming it, i.e. signs of His anointing, working. Otherwise, we are just preaching the letter of the law, with no Spirit to convict and compel the people.
