'Sorry seems to be the hardest word.' Maybe. But forgiving others also seems difficult. Our world doesn't model this well. As Christians, we have the perfect model in Jesus. He models this by his life of forgiving. In him, we can learn and grow in a life of forgiving.

It seems so normal in our world to blame others. This often happens in conflict situations. Jesus calls us to search our own actions, words, thoughts, and hearts to see if there is a 'log in our own eye'. The Seven A's of Apologising/Confessing can help us work through conflict in a healthy way.

Passage: Romans 5:6-11
Duration: 13 mins 8 secs
We’re all made differently. Our personalities and make up are different. How do you respond to conflict? Sometimes our responses are very different. God has a way of working with conflict which he shows and gives in the life, death, and resurrection new life of Christ.

Christians are God’s new creation in Christ. God newly creates us through the forgiveness of sins won by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. How do we respond to conflict? As God’s new creation we can grow in being ambassadors of reconciliation.
