Titus 3:9-11 (NKJV): But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless. Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.

There are times when it’s ok to have a disagreement. For example, a dispute or disagreement about whether it’s right or wrong to fall into sin, is a topic we will and should deal with, with love. But, if the disagreement causes division because the parties involved are fighting for power or to be right, then there becomes a problem. There shouldn’t be a disagreement that cannot be resolved because of pride.

Paul writes to the Roman Church, in Chapter 12, about living at peace wherever possible. He probably had in mind when Christ said that the world would know we are His Disciples by our love for each other (John 13:35).

Divisiveness, among believers, caused by a dispute, will cause a home to split apart. It will bring anger into people’s lives. It will hinder the Gospel from being spread. We are meant to be a Body Of Believers that work in unity.

In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul talks about the different parts of the body. It is a picture example of how we as The Body Of Christ should be working together to honor Jesus as well as each other. We are to build each other up not tear each other down.

if there is a disagreement with someone(s), we should be in prayer about how we handle it, and then we should talk to them privately about it. We shouldn’t be slandering each other. If we cannot reach an agreement or resolution, then we should, together, pray that Our Lord would help us to find a resolution. Unfortunately, sometimes that means we may have to walk away, peaceably. Again, we are not to slander each other.

If we truly want to walk with Christ, as His Followers, we need to be careful how we handle our disagreements and how we talk about others. It’s ok to not walk alongside of someone who you no longer feel led to. It’s not ok to slander them or to cause division with others from them or you because of your dispute.

Ask Jesus to Search your heart today in this regards.

If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.

It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it.

We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already. If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know.

Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance. If you find yourself in need of prayer and/or encouragement, please, feel free to call or text +1 (505) 600-1027 or email cross66info@gmail.com
