In this new home group series “Walking Together”, we will look at practical ways in which our closest committed relationships can thrive. In living out our relationships, our goal should be to walk in love, reflecting Jesus in our interactions. Ephesians 5:1-2 calls us to “Be imitators of God… and walk in love”. It’s not our Bible knowledge or Christian doctrine that will cause people to realise the benefits of following Christ, but the image of God reflected in how we show our love for one another (John 13:34-25).
This relationship series will draw upon the experiences of five couples in our fellowship. They share honestly about some of the struggles and challenges that have arisen through the course of their relationship with one another. The ways they have learnt to grow together and appreciate one another, although not perfect, are an example that can help us navigate our own relationships with those closest to us. Like our couples, this could be your spouse. For others, this could be relationships between parent and child, siblings or friends. It’s all about your closest relationships and how you communicate and interact together, with the aim that you better show your love to each other, reflecting Christ.
