Can’t We All Just Get Along?
Philippians 4.2-3

What was happening?
  • There was a disagreement between two women in the church.
  • The disagreement was not a matter of sin but of preference.

Is it okay to disagree?
  • Yes:  over clear Godhead and Gospel issues.
  • Yes:  over clear ethical and moral issues.
  • Yes:  over preferences, as long as they don’t become distractions.

What was the big deal?
  • The unity of the church was threatened.
  • Preserving unity in the church obeys God’s command (Eph. 4.3).
  • Preserving unity in the church brings God’s blessing (Ps. 133).
  • Preserving unity in the church speaks to the world (John 17.20-23). 

What was the solution?
  • For someone spiritually mature to offer help.
  • Remind them of their history.
  • Remind them of their future.
