Living Joyfully Ever After! Part 6: Restoring Our Relational Joy!

February 13, 2022

Philippians 4:1-3 (MSG)
My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride. Don’t waver. Stay on track, steady in God. 2 I urge Euodia and Syntyche to iron out their differences and make up. God doesn’t want his children holding grudges. 3 And, oh, yes, Syzygus, since you’re right there to help them work things out, do your best with them. These women worked for the Message hand in hand with Clement and me, and with the other veterans—worked as hard as any of us. Remember, their names are also in the book of life.

[2] We Iron Out Our Relational Differences By –

Implementing a Restoring !

 

 

“P” – a peace conference!

 

 

Matthew 5:23-24 (GW) — So if you are offering your gift at the altar and remember there that another believer has something against you, 24 leave your gift at the altar. First go … and make peace with that person. Then come back and offer your gift.

 

  

Confrontation plus love equals growth!

 

 

“E” – with the other person’s experience and feelings!

 

 

1 Corinthians 9:22 (MGS)

… I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view. I’ve become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life.

 

 

“A” the problem not the person!

 

 

James 4:1-2

 

 

“C” – wherever and however you can!

 

 

Matthew 5:9 (MSG) — You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight.

 

 

“E” – Emphasize over resolving!

 

 

2 Corinthians 5:20 (TLB)
We are Christ’s representatives. God is using us to speak to youreceive the love he offers you—be reconciled to God.
