We Need One Another!

God made you and me live in community with one another

We are made for relationship with one another, whether in marriage, family, friendship, work, or a church body.

Proverbs 27:17
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”

In Titus, Paul describes this wonderful opportunity for growth in godliness that comes through relationships.

When we lovingly correct one another, our words can help someone draw nearer to the Lord.

When we live sacrificially for one another, we model Christ’s example and become more like Him.

Display the very heart of God with your life, and you may even open a door to share the Gospel in the workplace.

In our personal time with God, we get to know our heavenly Father, but in our relationships with other people, we get to know ourselves. God uses our loved ones — and those we have a hard time loving — like a chisel to shape us into men and women who reflect the image of Christ to a broken world.

Pray: God, sometimes loving people is hard. I know that I am often unlovable. Give me Your love for others. May my interactions be pleasing to You as I pursue godliness in my relationships.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
