Why Can't People Get Along?

Sermon Transcript: 

Pick up any newspaper and you’ll read of war, racial disturbances and violent crime. Why can’t people get along with each other? 

The Bible asks a similar question, “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?”

How often have people shouted, “You make me so angry!” But that’s not altogether true. The other person cannot make you angry unless you choose to be angry. The reason people fight and quarrel is not primarily because of circumstances on the outside, it’s because of what’s going on inside. And the way to change the inside is to let God come in and take control of our lives. When we invite him in, he promises to change us from the inside out.
