Newton taught us that anything in motion has resistance and the Church should be in motion. Moving toward the goal that Jesus has set before us. (Hebrews 12:1) So how do we deal with resistance or conflict? The answer is found in Ephesians 4:31 ”Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Dealing with resistance or conflict is inevitable but we should deal with it in Love, knowing that our heart should be free from negative thoughts and feelings.
Lord, give us the grace to deal with resistance and conflict with Your heart. Amen
