“Train up a child in the way he should go and
when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
WE ARE WIRED FOR RELATIONSHIPS.
“Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is right for him.”” Genesis 2:18 NCV
“Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together. If one falls down, the other can help him up. But it is bad for the person who is alone and falls, because no one is there to help. If two lie down together, they will be warm, but a person alone will not be warm. An enemy might defeat one person, but two people together can defend themselves; a rope that is woven of three strings is hard to break.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NCV
HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP CAN MAKE LIFE.
MORE REWARDING. They get more done by working together.
MUCH SAFER. If one falls down, the other can help him up.
MORE MEANINGFUL. If two lie down together, they will be warm.
MUCH STRONGER. Two people together can defend themselves.
“Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?” Amos 3:3 NLT
GOD’S INCREDIBLE PROMISE:
THE POWER OF THE EARTH IS TO THOSE WHO CAN AGREE.
““I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about something and pray for it, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. This is true because if two or three people come together in my name, I am there with them.”” Matthew 18:19-20 NCV
“But the Lord came down to look at the city and the tower the people were building. “Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! Come, let’s go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other.”” Genesis 11:5-7 NLT
HOW CAN I IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF MY AGREEMENT?
1) HUMBLE YOUR SELF AND SEEK TO UNDERSTAND.
“Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.” I Peter 3:7 NKJV
2) HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SEEK TO OPEN UP AND BE KNOWN.
“Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”” Genesis 3:9-10 NKKJV
“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so God can heal you. When a believing person prays, great things happen.” James 5:16 NCV
HOW IS MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
DO I SEEK TO KNOW HIM?
“I love those who love me; those who seek me will find me.” Proverbs 8:17 CEB
DO I SEEK TO OPEN UP TO HIM?
““Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.” Revelation 3:20 NLT
