Pastors Joshua and Keren and Minister Jessica talk about having relationships in the New Life.
New Life part 4 – Relationships in the New Life
2 Corinthians 5:17 New Living Translation
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
Q: How has your decision to follow Christ affected the relationships in your life?
Principle: Create the relational culture you want to live in.
Q: What is a relationship you had to change when you came to Christ?
Matthew 10:37-39 New Living Translation
37 “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. 38 If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. 39 If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.
Principle: Part of what we have to let go of is relationships.
Q: What do you look for in a friendship now?
Principle: If you want to attract a spiritual person into your life show The Spirit. If you want to attract a person of the flesh, show the flesh.
1 Corinthians 6:15-16 New Living Translation
15 Don’t you realize that your bodies are actually parts of Christ? Should a man take his body, which is part of Christ, and join it to a prostitute? Never! 16 And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? For the Scriptures say, “The two are united into one.”
Mark 10:8-9 New King James Version
8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.
Proverbs 10:22 New King James Version
The blessing of the Lord makes one rich,
And He adds no sorrow with it.
