Relationships come in all different forms: parent/child, sister, brother, friendship, fellowship, companionship, acquaintance, co-worker, etc. There are a number of them, each one managed however seen fit by the ones participating in that particular relationship. So seeing that each is vastly different and holds its own unique value to each individual, is it possible that any of them have a direct correlation to the other. I mean really what is presented as a commonality for each relationship you hold in your life? You are. So let’s start with you.
In the beginning it was you and the relationship that wasn’t by your choice but given, you and the Word that gave you purpose and meaning. Now just to be clear I will explain what this Word is. It is best described in John chapter 1:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
If you notice with me this scripture states The Word as being God, so when I say the Word I’m actually saying God. But also notice that in the beginning even for Him was the Word. He too had this same relationship upon His existence without it there would not even be God in His own being. This concept brings on a whole new meaning of made in His likeness. (We will discuss in a future lesson in detail) This Word said that you will have life and it was so. I know most of us will separate our relationship with God from others because of who He is. I mean He is all knowing, powerful, forgiving, renders unconditional love. He’s just different from everyone else but are you not involved within this relationship. You are the common place in all your relationships so you hold the key to their success from the first one you have ever had to the last one you will ever have and why not set a precedent with the very first, the one relationship that deemed you worthy of Life. So I think it is safe to say that You are important and acknowledging where you came from, how, and why will set you on the path to defining you, the one who holds the key to your relationships.
Questions I would like for you to think on until the next lesson:
What do you know about where you came from? Is God a subject of relation for you in this regard? How well do you manage this relationship?
