How do you grow through conflict? … Greg Surratt

 

Galatians 6:9 (NLT) --- So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give

 

Comparison makes you tired in ministry.  It sidelines us. 

 

Conflict wears you out in ministry.

 

Acts 15:1 --- some men came down from Judea to Antioch.

 

1.  Don't let a few vocal critics HIJACK the VISION of the church.

 

·      The best way to predict the future is to invent it. – Alan Key

·      Give people what they want, not what they think they want. – Mark Cuban

·      The power is the constant but the practice is fluid.

·      Every new idea has an expiration date.

 

2.  Don't be afraid to get the issues on the table.

 

Acts 15:7 ---

 

·      There's a difference between good questions and a questioning spirit.

·      What's the evidence of someone filled with the Holy Spirit?

·      What issues are so sacred that we can't talk about them?

 

3.  Decide which hills you'd be willing to die on.

 

3 lists that we must agree on that allows us to grow:

·      preferences

·      convictions

·      essentials

 

·      The number of essentials will determine the size of the harvest.  Keep the lists short.

·      If you don't allow comparison and conflict to wear you out, you will see the harvest increase around you.

 

The harvest is coming!
