When Church People Can't Get Along

Sometimes the hardest people to get along with are the folks we go to church with.  Jesus said that we'll be known by our love for each other.  Therefore, we have some work to do. 
[I]f Christians share the same spirit and mind - the Spirit of Christ - then unity is a natural expression of that Spirit.  Given the sin which remains in believers in this life, however, unity often requires effort.  Thus Christians "stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel."  Strife should be actively avoided.  Mark Dever, The Church: The Gospel Made Visible
