Christians In Conflict
Passage: 1 Corinthians 6:1–6:8
1. Reread 1 Corinthians 6:1-8. If possible, listen to the sermon(s) again.
2. Looking back over this sermon and this sermon series, how has God convicted your heart, stirred your affections for Jesus, drawn you closer to Him? How has the Word challenged, confused, or made you ask questions?
3. How does abstaining from frivolous lawsuits or even petty disputes point to Jesus? Use scripture for your answer.
4. What does it mean in a practical sense to…
Have a high view of God, His Word, His church?
Seek to make things right, to reconcile?
Be more concerned with our unity and witness than our rights?
To be willing to absorb wrong by another Christian than be seen as right to the public?
Handle conflict differently than the world because Jesus handled our conflict with God?
Read 1 Peter 2:20-21
More importantly than simple adherence to the above five points is the why…
According to 1 Peter 2:20-21 Christ left us an example. Our why should always be about Jesus and making his glory show forth. So how do we see Jesus carrying out these specific things in scripture?
