God is a relational God. We are created in His image, so we are relational as well.
The road to success:
Relationships in our lives are important towards our success or failure in our lives. At Legacy Church we believe that everyone needs to grow relationships as they take their spiritual journey. Whom we surround ourselves with, whom we let into our inner circle who influence our decisions, could be the difference between success and failure. Even Jesus had an inner circle — Peter, James, and John (Mark 5:37, Mark 14:32-33, Luke 8:51, Luke 9:28).
The unequal yoke:
Whom we take our counsel from is equally important to our overall well-being. God desires that we are not unequally yoked with the wrong people. As Christians we are not to be yoked with unbelievers (2 Cor. 6:14-18 NASB). Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial? The answer is, None! We are to reach out to the sinner and believe that God will touch their heart and they will repent, but we are not to hang out with them and allow them to influence our lives.
In this last election, I am so shocked at how many people who call themselves Christians voted for people who believe in killing our babies and in sodomy, then go to church and worship God who is against all of that. Either He is Lord of all, or not Lord at all. The word of God should have a major influence on all aspects of our lives — all — not some. We are either for Him or against Him. No middle ground.
We must take the word of God seriously and build bridges that are going somewhere, instead of building bridges to nowhere.
Just a thought,
