Is God a Great fight promoter?
Does God ever enjoy seeing His children fight or argue?
Is it possible that God actually enjoys it when His children go separate ways?
“They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus, but Paul chose Silas and left, commended by the believers to the grace of the Lord.” – Acts 15:39-40
Two strong brothers both famous Lovers with the Love from Above medal and they can’t agree- What are the odds?
Pretty high I would say especially because God has everything to do with it!
While my first thought may have been to say “Hey Paul forgive Bro and get over yourself.” My next thought is “Too Cool God is still God and He has a hand in everything that hits me.” Yes I love spending time with “Grace-Full” Brothers and Sisters and a travel companion is always nice. Who knows maybe they had a discount on two hump camels if you bring a friend?
BUT at the end of the day people will want to know about Jesus and people will want to connect with the Love from Above because they connect with you and with what you are saying. God knows what He is doing and that includes people who Love Him being angry or disappointed with each other.
Remember because of this disagreement – Grace went to two separate groups!
Here is the key- Let the Love Flow AGAIN Baby!!
If I get to heaven and the first thing I see is Paul and Barnabus beating each other up and throwing things at each other- well then it isnt the heaven that I write about.
Yes churches split and many times Brothers and Sisters look like the south end of a north bound mule. BUT don’t let that stay in you. God uses everything but FORGIVENESS shows His true colors.
Don’t think I am right?
Look at the cross and tell me why Christ was hanging up there in one word or less!
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!
