The dictionary definition of ‘relationship’: “The way in which two or more people, or things are connected.”

Could you imagine a world without relationship? What would that even look like?

The very thought of not being connected to friends, family, and just people in general makes me nervous – sjoe, can’t imagine that hey! Never mind people – could you imagine not being connected to the one who created you and loves you the most in the world.

Connection to God our Father was lost in the Garden because of sin. The cross is what reconnects us. We now live, where nothing could separate us from Love and being in relationship with our heavenly Father – because of the cross.

Hard Believer – Fink

In Hard Believer the artist is speaking to the love of their life, who is in denial of their feelings.

I think part of this song echoes how God feels towards His church. We were made for each other, Won’t you believe me now? Ephesians 5:25-33 (http://bit.ly/2zugtDA) uses husband/wife imagery to show the desired relationship between the global church and Christ. Just as a wife and husband should love each other whole heartedly, we too, are to live to show whole-hearted love to Christ.

Jesus and I were made for each other. How will this be the sound track of your day today?

What would you do if you were caught doing something to hurt someone you loved a lot? Would you hide because you felt bad, or try and beg for forgiveness?

Often when we realise we’ve sinned against God we go into hiding until we think God might have forgotten! Hosea’s encouragement is this, ‘Come, let us return to the Lord!’ (Hosea 6v1)

Coming back to God when we’ve let him down can be hard, but it’s also the most healing thing we can do. Do you need to return to God and tell him about some stuff?

Jesus’ Relationship Rescue

Near the end of Jesus’ agonising time on the cross he said three words: ‘It is finished.’ (John 19v30)

What was finished? Everything that needed to be done to make our relationship with God right again.

Do you believe that? A guy called Darrell Johnson said that we can either believe Jesus did that relationship-rescue work for us or we can spend the rest of our lives trying to get it done ourselves.

Are you trying hard to earn a good relationship with God by doing all the right things, or feeling despair cos you can’t get it right?

Here’s good news. Jesus did it already. It is finished.
