How To Respond to Problems In A Church – sermon by Roy King

DrRoyKing_6I am sure the churches you are part of never face conflicts, divisions, or confusion. Well, the ones I have been a part of sure have some of these challenges.

I believe Jesus is not surprised when the church he is building encounters and creates problems. I also believe the Spirit placed some hope for how to move through these problems.

Here is a sermon where I attempt to look at First Corinthians as a guide given by Paul, the church planter, to a church now four years old and struggling with painful divisions and struggles.

There is HOPE. But like going to a doctor when we are in pain the path of healing requires getting beyond the symptoms to the root cause and then addressing this source.

Mary & Joseph Conversations with an Angel – Message Preparing for Christmas

Have you ever submitted your plan to God and then have him hand it back with red ink all over and a request to drop your plan and go with his?

Have you ever known something to be so true (2+2=4 kind of true) only to have God say, “Not this time! I am doing something that doesn’t add up?”

Let us see what we can learn about our expectations and our assumptions from the Christmas story in Luke 2.
