We all know how challenging life can be. Even life in the Spirit presents challenges. The first century Church in Jerusalem faced conflict from both outside and inside the community of faith, much like the twenty-first century Church today. Yet if the people of God are to face challenges because of our obedience to Christ, God will provide the way to meet those challenges in the power and wisdom provided by the Holy Spirit. And the way God provides, is to be found in serving one another in the way of Christ.
