Christian Maturity-Disagreement

God’s purpose for our life is that we should grow mature in Christ.

Max Derree said “In the end it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.”

The more spiritually you grow, the more you realize just how much your thoughts are actually focused on yourself. Even the thoughts that formerly seemed good and acceptable all of the sudden look selfish. Only then do the words “look to Jesus” finally take on real meaning. Author: Anonymous”

Bible accounts, church history and our personal experiences bear witness that good and godly people have their disagreement. ØVariances of opinion over minor matters must not be allowed to develop into divisions that create major problems and schisms in church. ØWe must learn to disagree without being disagreeable if we have to serve the Lord together and glorify his name. ØDisagreement may not start a fight. But if it is not dealt carefully then it can lead to problems. ØMany Disagreements ignored takes bitter root and can destroy a persons spiritual sensitivity. ØA person whose spiritual sensitivity is lost becomes dead spiritually and can do anything to cover up and lead a double standard life.

I got an oppourtunity to share about this topic with Romans 14. I have made a PowerPoint Show of it. You can find it at
