Our Relationship Foundation
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay”, says the Lord. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:9-19,21.
Do not let the rat race of life and competition with one another, nor denominational diversity, let us forget our relationship foundation above. When struggles arise they are to make us stronger rather than discourage, defeat us or cause us to lose our faith.
So if you have a problem, take it to the Lord in prayer, if you find you need more help than we can provide or support, for He is El-Shadai our all suffiicient God. Man may fail and heaven and earth may pass away, but Jesus never fails. Amen.
