Oct. 28 - Nov. 03  •  Week 8: Live in Harmony With One Another

Introduction

As we continue in our One-Anothering series, this week we are challenged to live in harmony with one another. Whatever difference of opinions or tension points in our relationships, we are still called out of a love for God and one another to find peace and harmony with one another. It is the offender’s responsibility to admit fault, restore the relationship, and seek harmony. God is not interested in our religious actions if we are not willing to do the humble work of restoration with one another through seeking harmony. 

 Main Point: 

Living in harmony with one another is more important to God than our religious activities.

 Discussion Questions

  1. Talk together about harmony. Thinking even about music. Where have you experienced harmony in your own life?

  2. Share a time where things were difficult in an important relationship in your life, and harmony was restored. How has that harmony impacted your life since?

  3. Read Matthew 5:23-24 together. What does obedience to this command look like here in 2018 for us at RCC?

  4. On Sunday Andy asked the question, “Can the relationship pass the “Mall Test?” What does this mean to you and your relationships?

  5. Is there anyone in your life that you are not at peace with? Have you done everything in your power—as much as it depends on you—to be at peace with that person? 

 Next Step Challenge

Jesus, through His death and defeat of sin, and the sending of the Holy Spirit, enables unity with all followers of Christ. We have the capacity to love and serve through humility because Jesus has been our example and made peace possible with God and others. We must do all we can in our power through the Holy Spirit to live in harmony with one another so that we can focus our lives around the freedom God offers to serve Him, rather than the slavery caused by our broken relationships.
