“Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.”
The relationships you have with the people around you are a huge part of God’s plan for your life. God has placed you among the people around you so that he can work through you in their lives!
Sometimes we treat our relationships lightly, as though they were a “little thing”, but we should be constantly giving every relationship we have to God and inviting him to work through us in those people’s lives. Don’t think that God only wants to work through you in your pleasant relationships; he also wants to work through you in those relationships that are tough.
Like the Apostle Paul in the passage above, work hard to impact every life you touch for God. When you encounter a person, always think, “How can I encourage this person spiritually? How can I turn their thoughts to the Lord? How can I pray for them?” Trust God to guide you as you speak with them.
Treat no conversation lightly, but look for ways to be used by God. How might God be able to use you today if you approach your relationships like this? The little word, the little time you give can have eternal impact.
