The Good Fight, Session 3: Shepherding the Flock: Conflict among the sheep — Max Curell
This message was originally given by Pastor Max Curell on 2/22/2017 at Clearnote Church (Bloomington, IN) as part of the 2018 Shepherd’s Conference, The Good Fight: Conflict in Christian Ministry.
There’s a reason the Bible says a lot about conflict in the church—about quarrels and divisions and biting and devouring. Churches are messy places, full of sinners. And where there are sinners, there is conflict and strife. It’s the job of every pastor to deal with conflict among the sheep—to preserve peace and unity without sacrificing the true righteousness to which God calls his people.
