Sawyers Church Daily Devotions

Daily devtion header.jpgThe power of healthy relationships

“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12(NLT)

We started Alpha last week and met some amazing people from all walks of life. One of the things that always encourages me about alpha is that when people come together with their questions, experiences and challenges they often find others in the group with similar experiences. You then see a group of people that journey together and in that ‘togetherness’ you see strength and you see relationships develop with people that you’d have never put together.

We were made for relationship and there is power in great strength in walking your journey of life and faith with other people.

In the verse in Ecclesiastes we read of the power of togetherness. There is strength when we journey through life together. Faith is built when we sharpen one another in our walk with God, when we ask the hard questions, extend hospitality to one another, when we care and love well, when we listen as people divulge their feelings.

I believe for Christians it is imperative to have other believers who we walk through life with, who inspire us in the faith, who call us to reflect Christ more and more

Who is that person, or even better who are those people for you? For you’re vulnerable if you’re walking this journey of faith alone, but with one or two alongside it is harder to break.

Pray today about who you could inspire in their walk with God

Pray today about who you could ask to inspire you

Have a blessed day
