The Wisdom of Right Relationships - Hebrews 10

The subject of positive relationships is near to my heart because God has provided me with such good friends. These are the people who challenge me to do more for the Lord. My friends love me, but they certainly aren’t content to let me stay as I am! If they spot a sin in my life or see something I could do better, they say so.

Paul gave relationships a high priority too. The apostle surrounded himself with people who could help him achieve two things: fulfillment of his God-given mission and conformity to Christlikeness. While Paul was pouring himself into the lives of others, he was being built up and strengthened by his fellow believers. That, in brief, is the Lord’s plan for every one of His children.

What about you? Do you have certain relationships that motivate you to pursue God more fervently? It does matter whom we allow to influence our lives. The Father equips your brothers and sisters to invest in you - to encourage you, to pray for you, and to prod you toward a more complete faith - so that you are prepared to devote yourself to serving others. Good relationships with people who build each other up can help believers fulfill God’s plan for their lives.

The finest relationships are between people who want to see each other succeed in faith and therefore “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Heb. 10:24, niv). In other words, our best friends are those who love us as we are but never cease to challenge us to be better for the Lord.

Current Sermon Series
      The book of Titus is full of rules. But the motivation for these rules is not legalism. It is the incarnation of the Son of God for redemption. Christianity is not merely rules to be followed but, instead, joy to be found.

Last Week:
      Paul addressed 5 different groups in chapter 2. Older men, older women, younger women, younger men, and bondservants. He told these groups what needed to be done in order to have a healthy, Godly life.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      Lord willing, we will finish up our series, Titus - Motivated By Christ, by looking into Difficult Devotion.
