Relationships start with a good foundation.

Hear


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23).

Relationships ... talk about the ultimate challenge in life!

Learning how to get along with another human being is just plain hard. It is an experience often filled with heartache and pain and personal turmoil.

Your beliefs get tested and all your inner struggles and insecurities get revealed.

Yet, you power through because you know relationships are the best part of life.

You want to care and to be cared for. You want to know and to be known. You want to love and to be loved.

This just doesn’t happen. Relationships are built. They start with a good foundation and then with the right building materials grow and deepen over time.

Jesus is the foundation. He provides all the right building materials. As you trust him, you will see these seven relationship builders form and shape every relationship you have.

  1. Patience
  2. Kindness
  3. Truth
  4. Protection
  5. Trust
  6. Hope
  7. Perseverance

This is what love looks like in action. It is the fruit of Christ’s life in you. As Paul wrote, “the fruit of the Spirit is love…”

If you want to win at the ultimate challenge in life, look to Jesus. He is your hope for strong and meaningful relationships.

The command to every disciple of Jesus Christ is to love others “just as I have loved you” (John 13:34). When you take a close look at your relationship with Jesus, you will see that he built it through patience, kindness, truth, protection, trust, hope and perseverance. This is how he loved you. This is how he loves you now. Abide here, and you will be loving others in the same way.

In Him,
