Life Mission Church (Redesign)

Division in Our Churches and Homes

Life is messy. Church life is messy. Every church has problems, because every church is made up of people. But God has called His people to come together to live life alongside each other and to encourage and carry each other, even amid difficult and challenging circumstances. The Apostle Paul planted a church in Corinth, Greece, and it very quickly became a church that dealt with many problems. They lacked maturity and wisdom, despite being a very gifted church. 1 Corinthians is a fatherly challenge and guide to them to help them get back on track and grow in the wisdom they need.

In this sermon, we see that the church had divisions forming over trivial matters, and Paul is admonishing them. Division is at the heart of every sin, and is rampant not just in our churches, but our relationships and families. What causes divisions in our friendships, and how can we prevent them and navigate through them?
