Message #326 "Treasure In Earthen Vessels" Part 2 of 2 - Acts 15:36-41 Sunday, June 3 2018 As we conclude our study in Acts 15, the Holy Spirit puts before us a picture of two believers who part ways due to a disagreement. This occurs some days after both had been used by the Holy Spirit, along with the apostles and elders, to bring peace and resolve a doctrinal dispute by a word of wisdom. What does the Holy Spirit want to teach and challenge us with through this conflict, which ends with godly men departing from one another? James 1:22 encouragement (1) pray about disagreements you've had where pride may have been at the root of your strongly held position. Ask God to give you wisdom in how to communicate the truth in love and with humility. (2) Read 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter which the Holy Spirit inspired the apostle Paul to write. Consider its practical application, as seen in Ephesians 4:29-32. How is God challenging you to grow in your communications with your brothers and sisters in Christ?
