THE MANNER OF LIFE – Getting Along with Others

This morning as we continue the series on Philippians, Paul will address an issue that can affect our life and our churches. This issue is that of getting along with others. Sometimes getting along with others can be one of the most difficult problems we face in life.

Do people ever get to you? How does it affect you? How do you handle it? What can you do about it? Paul will bring up the story of two ladies within the Philippi church. Their names are Euodia and Syntyche. They are mentioned no where else in scripture and will go down in history as two women who lived in disharmony within this church.

Paul will address this issue and how disharmony can hurt people and a church. This is something Paul will urge and plea to be dealt with. This morning as you listen to this message, will any of these words or thoughts speak to you? Will they touch any wounds that have not been healed? Unresolved conflict in your past?

Do not continue to live in disharmony. It is not worth it. All sides lose. In life, getting along with others and disagreements is one of the most difficult problems we can face in life. Not all disagreements are wrong in nature. But the ultimate goal is always restoration and forgiveness. Let’s get along with each other and keep it together. Let’s help others keep it together.

Enjoy this morning’s service. I know the music, family altar, and the spoken word of God will be so good for all of us.

Encouraging One Another,

Pastor Mike

Key Scripture: Philippians 4:1-4


Closing Appeal for Steadfastness and Unity

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firmin the Lord in this way, dear friends!

I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

Final Exhortations

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
