The “R’s” Part Six

May 27, 2009

Relationship

Genesis 2:18-25

“It is not good for man to be alone . . .”

What an amazing statement God makes.  Think about it for a minute.  God of all the universe, creator of all things, all powerful, all knowing, all present declares the first thing in creation that was not good.  Everything so far in the creation account God had declared to be good, but not so for the absence of human relationships.  You see, Adam up until this point had perfect fellowship with God.  They walked in through the garden together and they conversed.  Yet God declared that was not enough.  Crazy!

We need each other.  We need the divine mystery of human companionship in the context of biblical community.  We need a place where we can live out the day to day triumphs and struggles holding each other’s arms up and each fulfilling their purpose in Christ.  (See 1 Corinthians 12).

Yeah, we get it wrong and hurt each other.  We do struggle with selfishness and wound one another in the process.  But hear me, we will not make it with out the relationships that God designed us for.

I always quote Luke 10:27, it’s about Loving God and Loving People.  People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.  Righteousness is all about right relationships – Being right with God allows us to become right with ourselves and then we can become rightly related to those around us.

    Scott you are awesome man and I love you bro. You hit it right on the head here. We need one another more than ever in today’s times. I am so grateful that God allowed me to have such amazing friends and that I can count you as one of them. I pray we never forget the importance of Godly relationships.
