Conclusion: Conflicts will come. Not a matter of if, but when. And when they do, we have to do as God desires. He has laid out the advice and suggestions throughout His Word to lead and guide us. We have examples to look upon and then promises to accept. I pray we will use them all as they fit the situations upon which we find ourselves. There is peace to be had within the body of Christ. Let’s work together to achieve the reconciliation the Lord desires.
