Learning the Way - Peacemakers Week 3
There are 5 commitments to biblical peacemaking that Paul lays out in this text. They are:
Love Jesus above all things.(verse 1)
Mature in sound doctrine. Truth with grace. (verse 4)
Develop Christ-like character. Humility and submission. (verse 2)
Respect and pursue God given diversity. (verse 11)
Maintain unity. (verse 3)
In what areas of your life do you struggle to let anyone in? To ask for help?
Where have you allowed the lie of individualism corrupt and weaken the relationships in your life?
How do you see your lack of knowledge of the Word affecting your life?
When do you feel as though you have no anchor? That you are being tossed around by the waves of life? What lies are you believing in those moments?
When do you feel the most arrogant and judgmental?
Where is the enemy sowing seeds of division in your heart? What can we pray for?
Where do you cling to your comfort rather than celebrate the diversity?
What relationships are you neglecting to pursue because they aren’t easy?
What will you do this week to maintain unity in your marriage, your family, your small group, your church?
How do you see God already doing this in your life? What are some peacemaking victories we can celebrate tonight?
