Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment. For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe’s people, that there are quarrels among you.
1 Corinthians 1:10-11 NASB
This is a portion of our Bible Study this past Sunday morning.
Where do quarrels come from?
What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?
James 4:1 NASB
When our focus is centered on anyone or anything other than God Himself we will experience conflict. Our will and desires conflicting with the will and desires of others when together we should be seeking the will of God. Desiring to please Him.
Additional Scripture from Sunday’s Bible Study:
Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, “I am of Paul,” and “I of Apollos,” and “I of Cephas,” and “I of Christ.”
1 Corinthians 1:12 NASB
There should be no argument. It is all about God. So. . .
But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ.
Matthew 23:8-10 NASB
🌹Who is your teacher, your Father, your leader? There is only One and we, His people, need to come together in unity seeking His leadership, counsel, and teachings. He is God. We are not.
Continually Seeking Him,
