Why Do Christians Fight So Much?
JOHN 13:34-35 NKJ 34 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 "By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
Instead of being known for love, Christians are more likely to be known for disagreements and fighting with other Christians.
Those who fight are displaying their immaturity. Children can be expected to squabble over insignificant things, but adults should not.
Yet even Christian leaders often fight with other Christian leaders.
It is the devil's strategy to get believers in strife because it opens the door to him. Do you really want to open the door to the devil?
JAMES 3:16 KJV 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
God allows us to face the temptation of strife so we can overcome and learn to walk in love. We are continually given the opportunity to walk in love.
God's primary concern now is preparing us to inhabit eternity with Him. His plan is to make us like Jesus (Romans 8:29). To become like Jesus, we must learn to resist the temptation to not walk in love.
SAY THIS: With God's help, I will walk in love. I refuse to fight and be in strife with other Christians.
