THE POWER OF RELATIONSHIP

THE POWER OF RELATIONSHIP
by



Pastor (Dr.) Celeb Akanbi

Text: Genesis 2:18 “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him”.

  • God builds us specifically for relationships to survive in life.
  • Relationship is very important to get to any level in life.

Acts 2:42-44 “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. And all that believed were together, and had all things common”.

A man that does not have a good relationship with God cannot have a great relationship with other people.

FOUR PILLARS THAT ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIPS:

  • Pillar of Love (ability to accept the people they way they are).
  • Pillar of Trust.
  • Pillar of Respect (know people’s worth and values).
  • Pillar of Understanding (listening to others, giving attention).

THREE ESSENTIAL RELATIONSHIPS IN LIFE:

  • Higher Authorities (e.g. God, Mentors).
  • Peers
  • Subordinate

POWER OF RELATIONSHIP:

  • Connections (It is difficult when you place your burdens on your abilities alone, examples of connections; academics connection, jobs connection, partner connection, Recommendation, etc. People that will help you are within you).
  • Healthy living (Anybody living a lonely life is living in a sensitive poor health condition; good relationship can help your health).
  • Life fulfillment (If you want to live a fulfilled life, you must be someone that cherish good relationships.)
