Biblical Advice for Addressing Relational Frustrations in the Church

Being hurt is inevitable, even in the church. That’s because relationships and emotions, designed to reflect God’s love, are nevertheless marred by sin. When someone commits an offense, it may seem justifiable to retaliate, gossip, or suffer silently, but Christians are called to pursue godly forgiveness that leads to reconciliation.

In this addition to the Church Questions series, Daniel P. Miller helps readers understand how to biblically confront conflicts in the church. Acknowledging that the main priority of relationships is always Christ’s glory, he helps readers understand their moral responsibility when responding to frustrations and, ultimately, to trust in God’s promise to use all pain for their edification.
