I’ve Got A Choice To Make

New Hope Oahu’s Core Value #7:

We Believe that genuine love and caring relationships are key to the life of every endeavor.

Refusing to give audience to a spirit of complaining, we will instead be courageous in solving every problem in a way that honors God and builds biblical character. We value healthy relationships by protecting the unity of the Spirit in our church.


“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our

Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in

what you say and that there be no divisions among you,

but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. My

brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have

informed me that there are quarrels among you. What I

mean is this: One of you says, ‘I follow Paul’; another, ‘I

follow Apollos’; another, ‘I follow Cephas’; still another, ‘I

follow Christ.’” (1 Cor. 1:10-12)

“It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality

among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not

tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. And you

are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning

and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been

doing this? For my part, even though I am not physically

present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with

you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the

name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing

this.” (1 Cor. 5:1-3)

1. Love chooses to abandon the flesh, and chases

after truth.

“Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that ‘We

all possess knowledge.’ But knowledge puffs up while

love builds up. Those who think they know something

do not yet know as they ought to know. But whoever

loves God is known by God.”” (1 Cor. 8:1-3)

2. Love chooses to fortify people instead of our ego.
