Relationships Always Matter
Our relationship with Jesus Christ and our fellow believers ALWAYS MATTERS!
Relationships matter as they are integral to our understandings of the Body of Christ. There is one body and one head of that body, which is Jesus Christ.
The body of Christ is a living and relational entity where believers experience an inter-connectedness and alignment from the head which builds the body.
In these interconnections, the words we speak to others have a power and influence that can release or wound an other person. Proverbs 18:21 puts it this way, “death and life are in the power of the tongue”.
Given the grace which we have received as a gift from Christ, our works should show a humility and hospitality as we are all equal in the body of Christ; we are all followers of his way.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit. (NKJV)
