2/17/14 Daily Devotion

Galatians 2:2 I went in response to a revelation and set before them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles. But I did this privately to those who seemed to be leaders, for fear that I was running or had run my race in vain.

There is always a right way to do things, a right way to see things through to fruition, even within the church. Paul demonstrates this as we read today’s scripture reference. Through a revelation, he was made aware of a problem; but the manner in which he approached this problem shows the amount of concern he possessed for the health of the church. Paul did not jump out in front of everyone with words of accusation. Instead, he went to the perceived leaders and shared what God had put on his heart. He did this so they would understand his motives, so they would see his concern for the church. When we approach conflict, we must do it in a way that does not make it appear that we have personal motives or something personal to gain. We must approach it from the guise of concern for those involved and for the church as a whole. Those involved, those observing from the outside, must be able to know we are trying to seek God’s will for the situation.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me walk into conflict with the right heart and mind, so in the end, the situation is rectified and You are glorified.
