3 Observations:

  1. Conflicts happen – even in the church

What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. James 4:1-2

  1. Conflict isn’t just for the immature

  2. Conflicts affects the entire church

What should you do when conflict takes place?

  1. Strive for agreement

  2. Receive help if you can’t agree

  3. Strive for unity even when you disagree

Practical Steps for Conflict Resolution:

  • Prayerfully consider if you can overlook the offense
  • Go to your brother if there is an offense
  • Care more about your gospel witness than you do about winning the fight
  • Remember who the true enemy is
  • Remember what your true Identity is
