Sermons from New Covenant Community Church

Staying Free from Offense (1 Peter 4:7-11, Proverbs 10:12, Proverbs 19:11, Ephesians 4:3)

Joel Greutman, August 13, 2017
Part of the None series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Much of the New Testament is about the Church, and because the Church is who we are, much of that is about how we are to be in relationship with one another. In this teaching, Pastor Joel Greutman looks at how offense is the enemy of relationship and will hinder us in our relationships, and ultimately our relationship with God if we give in.

1 Peter 4:7-11

The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)

Proverbs 10:12

12 Hatred stirs up strife,
but love covers all offenses. (ESV)

Proverbs 19:11

11 Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense. (ESV)

Ephesians 4:3

eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (ESV)
