The Gospel and Personal Conflicts (1 Cor. 6:1-11)

Admittedly, we don't handle conflicts very well. Maybe because yung culture natin ay shame-based. Pero mas malamang na explanation or reason ay dahil sa pride at self-centeredness, at pati na rin yung failure natin to apply the gospel to our prideful hearts in fixing our relational problems.

Navigating Conflicts with Grace

Being passionate for the gospel doesn't mean conflict-free. Nakita na natin 'yan sa series sa 1 Peter. Pero doon, outside the church ang problema. Pero mas mahirap kung inside the church ang magiging problema. How have you responded sa panahon na may naging ka-conflict ka? Meron din bang bitterness, anger, defensiveness, self-justification? But how must we really respond? Paul's exhortation sa Romans 15:1-7 about how the strong in faith should relate to those weak in faith will be especially helpful for us.

Ayos na ang Lahat (Col. 1:21-23)

Jesus is the gospel. Wala nang mas maganda pa kaysa rito. Wala nang kailangan tayong marinig araw-araw maliban dito. Hindi mo na pwedeng sabihing, "Kung magkakaroon lang sana ako nito, kung mangyayari lang sana ito, magiging ayos na ang buhay ko." Masasabi mo na, "Dahil nasa akin na si Cristo, ayos na ang buhay ko, kahit ano pa ang sabihin ng ibang tao."
