A Skeptic’s Guide to Church (Week 8): “Maintaining Harmony”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – Titus 3:9-15

Pastor Jason Mayhall concludes the sermon series entitled “A Skeptic’s Guide to the Church,” at Redemption Bible Church. Pastor Jason teaches this week about how Paul guided Titus to focus on maintaining harmony in his church. Paul instructs Titus to avoid getting his church involved in foolish controversies, as they do not bring more disciples to Jesus. He says it is important to confront divisive people so that others do not split up into factions, but will remain unified. We must always look for ways we can help each other and glorify God, rather than fighting over petty differences. It is forgiveness, showing grace to our brothers and sisters, which is the key element in building harmony. We must learn from the example Jesus set for us, showing us grace in spite of our sins and use that as a benchmark for how we treat others.
