When we’re out of line, our first inclination may be to ignore, downplay or justify our actions or words, but the things we do and say have an impact on those around us. How does Jesus tell us to respond? This Sunday, Pastor Josh continues a series called Tough Stuff, looking at some of the things that Jesus taught about the issues that too often arise in our relationships with other people.
TOUGH STUFFMessage by Josh Mutter – January 27, 2019
RECONCILEMatthew 5:23-26 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar.
WORSHIP MOVES US TOWARDS RECONCILIATION
SEEKING RECONCILIATION IS OFTEN NOT CONVENIENT
SEEKING RECONCILIATION IS PREVENTATIVE
- Admit that we are wrong.
- Talk to God.
- Ask for forgiveness.
- Listen without getting defensive.
CLOSING THOUGHT: SEEKING RECONCILIATION IS A PART OF OUR TESTIMONY
