As was discussed in the July sermon series, there are all kinds of reasons for churches to fight or split. We have differences in opinions because God made each of us unique and gave each of us a brain to use. He doesn’t ask us to all think alike when we are saved. He does however command us to love Him and love others. Since He commands this of everyone who follows Him, we should make conscious effort to reach out to other believers and work together to make a difference in the world.
1. Do you have relationships with other believers outside of Hillcrest?
2. If so, what could you do together that would make a difference in the world? If you don’t have any relationships with other believers outside of Hillcrest, how could you meet people and cultivate those relationships?
Challenge: With another believer, find a way to make a difference in someone else’s life.
