From the very beginning, we were created to be in relationship with other human beings. Even the most introverted among us need the companionship of others to feel fully alive. One of the best places to find relationship is in the church. But if we never establish friendships outside of the church, how will seekers discover Christ? Maintaining a balance of healthy relationships in both arenas should be a goal for believers.
1. Does the church feel like family to you? How can you go about further strengthening your church family ties?
2. Do you find that you sometimes shy away from forming a relationship with someone you like because they aren’t a Christian?
Challenge: A two-step challenge. First, make an effort to strengthen one of your relationships within the church family. Second, make a plan to either establish or deepen a relationship with someone who isn’t a believer.
