Building Real Relationships

Post by Evangelista_GP on Mon Jun 27, 2016 12:28 pm

Building Real Relationships
‘He now showed them the full extent of his love.’

John 13:1

People spend hours every day on social networks like Facebook - in many cases because they’re lonely. Now, there’s nothing wrong with interacting with others this way. In fact, social media offers one of the greatest tools the Church has ever had for reaching the world with the gospel. But in a day when it’s getting easy to neglect real relationships, let’s remember why we’re connecting with others in the first place. One author says: ‘Life is so much richer when we have friends with whom we can share our joys and troubles … Unfortunately loneliness remains a major problem and source of pain for many. But none of us need become resigned to loneliness; [it’s]…“treatable,” if not actually avoidable.’ Real relationships aren’t built by posting updates, or tweeting and re-tweeting the most thought-provoking quotes. It takes more time than that. The greatest social networking involves meeting someone’s needs in a way that never would’ve happened without a one-on-one connection. That’s what Jesus did. Most of His public ministry was spent pouring Himself into twelve men who, in turn, went out in His name and poured themselves into others. The Bible says, ‘Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.’ The psalmist spelled out how many people today feel deep down: ‘No one is concerned for me … no one cares’ (Psalm 142:4 NIV 2011 Edition). If you want to meet people’s needs you have to get ‘up close and personal’. That’s what Jesus did, and He’s your example.
2 Chron 13-14, Acts 22

Yes,I've always wondered how life would have been if God had created and left just one man on earth? He'd die of boredom and loneliness. Imagine how lonely it feels to be in a big mansion, when you are "home alone" not to talk about the entire universe.
That's why God had to find Adam a mate.And blessed man to multiply and increase. To maintain that Link, that sense of belonging, that Sense of public acceptance, a relationship becomes inevitable,to bridge the gap,between man,his fellow man and his environment. And that has just one key,COMMUNICATION.

You're right Ozoemena,I learnt that from you :-) Without communication, there'd be no relationship, without relationship ,people would be living in isolation in the midst of populations.
