Peacemaking

Everyone is either in conflict, coming out of conflict, or getting into conflict. Thanks to the gospel of Jesus Christ, conflict can be resolved and peace can be restored by using these peacemaking principles.



  1. Glorify God (Corinthians 10:31)
  2. Get the Log Out of Your Own Eye (Matthew 7:3-5)
  3. Gently Engage Others (Galatians 6:1)
  4. Go and Be Reconciled (Matthew 5:23-24)

  1. “I will not dwell on this incident.”
  2. “I will not bring up this incident… again and use it against you.”
  3. “I will not talk to others about this incident.”
  4. “I will not let this incident stand between us or hinder our personal relationship.”

  • ADDRESS everyone involved (all those whom you affected)
  • AVOID if, but, and maybe (do not try to excuse your wrongs)
  • ADMIT specifically (both attitudes and actions)
  • ACKNOWLEDGE the hurt (express sorrow for hurting someone)
  • ACCEPT the consequences (such as making restitution)
  • ALTER your behavior (change your attitude and actions)
  • ASK for forgiveness

  1. “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.” Matthew 18:15
  2. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.” Matthew 18:16
  3. “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.” Matthew 18:17
