About Love is a Verb Teaching Series
Life is made of relationships: friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, roommates, parents, husbands, wives, daughters, and sons. There are few, if any, factors in life that are better able to predict someone’s health, happiness, life expectancy, and overall life satisfaction than being able to establish and maintain healthy relationships. Fortunately, the Bible has quite a bit to say about how to navigate these important relationships. In this series, we’ll explore the five things that are essential to develop and maintain healthy relationships.
Week Five – Forgiveness: If we’re missing it, it will contaminate everything.
Nothing erodes healthy relationships like unforgiveness. The reality is that while you may be justified in your bitterness, it still contaminates everything. Left unchecked, it will ruin everything that is important to you. In this message, we’ll learn that often we don’t forgive others for their sake; we do it for our own freedom.
Week Four – Peace in Our Relationships: We all encounter conflict—what do we do with it?
In every authentic relationship you have, there will be conflict, and let’s be honest, most of us are grossly under-equipped in knowing how to handle it. In this message, we’ll explore how we can transform how we see conflict, as well as how we respond to it.
Week Three – Choosing Wisely: Does it really matter who I hang out with?
Most of us have no clue just how much our inner circle impacts every aspect of our life. The Bible actually goes into great detail about the kind of people you really want in your inner circle, and who you need to be cautious around. In this message, we’ll learn about the kind of people we need in our life as well as those we should probably be careful of.
Week Two – Power of Words: More powerful than you ever imagined!
Plain and simple: words give life or words bring death, and you get to choose which. Think about it; you have never spoken a neutral word in your life. Your words have direction to them. In this message, we’ll discover together just how powerful our words are and what the Bible says about how to use that power.
Week One – Pride: What’s at the bottom of almost all relationship mistakes?
In general, pride is at the bottom of all great relationship mistakes. In this message, we’ll explore the different forms of pride and their impact on the way we relate to others. We’ll also discover what the Bible says about how to conquer pride, which can be lethal to our relationships, not just with each other, but also with our Creator.
Introduction: What Does the Bible Have to Say About Relationships?
If you go into any bookstore and look at books in the relationship area, you’ll find plenty on finding the “right” person. Interestingly enough, most of what the Bible teaches about love and relationships is based on the idea that the relationships we all desire come not when we get what we want, but when we give what we have.
