If God created us for intimate relationships with others - where did we go wrong?
Have you been failing time and time again in relationships hoping next time it will work? Are you frustrated and need a new direction?
Last week we began our new prison series on "intimate relationships". We began by realigning our compasses so they all point in the right direction.
All of our relationships should originate with God.
- It's natural - God created us for intimate relationships.
- It's simple - You matter to God.
- It takes two - Your response to His lavish love.
How much does God love you?
"God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it." John 3:16-18 (Message)
Friends, we complicate things when it really is so simple.
You were made... by God.
For a relationship... with God.
All other relationships start from this direction.
Did the inmates get it? It was energizing! The room was packed - friends inviting friends, others were new arrivals to the prison - ready to begin this journey together. All are glued to the hot topic of intimate relationships.
Jesus can be trusted!
My friends please stay tuned...
For the next two Saturday's our HOT topic is: "Does God Care About My Intimate Relationships... With My Dysfunctional Family?" Part 1: Abusive Parents
All For His Glory!
