STRUGGLES: INTIMACY / RELATIONSHIPS
—Mike Teel, Pastor
John 13:34-35 34A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
HOW ARE RELATIONSHIPS CHANGING?
1. THE TERM FRIEND IS EVOLVING.
We’ve got lots of online interactivity, and yet, we may have very limited intimacy.
2. WE'RE BECONING ADDICTED TO IMMEDIATE AFFIRMATION.
3. WE HAVE THE POWER TO DO FRIENDSHIP ON OUR OWN TERMS.
PRACTICE THE POWER OF PRESENCE
LET'S GET PRACTICAL
1. BE PRESENT
Love is an action word.
2. BE ENGAGED
I Peter 4:8
I John 3:18 (NLT)
LIVE IT OUT
