Socialife: Week 2 – Pastor Kevin Kringel
God desires healthy relationship with us, which makes us better in relating to others.
Listen to the audio version of the message.
“Healthy relationships are not automatic they take intentionality and effort.My Healthy relationships are not other people’s responsibility, they are mine.”
Scriptures & Notes
So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family.
I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.
And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.
For His Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
1 John 3:1
See how very much our Father loves us, for He calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.
1 Thessalonians 1:4 (NASB)
4 knowing, brethren beloved by God, His choice of you;
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.
