As we come to the end of this series, our desire for you is that you will continue to grow and become better in your relationships. So much has been covered in this series in an attempt to get you started in the right direction. Where ever you are in relationship, how far you have gone into your relationship should not stop you from desiring to improve on how you do relationships. Give yourself the opportunity to grow and do better – from glory to glory. Learn from the word and also learn from great examples around you. Desire excellence in the area of relationships. Do not allow the lies of the enemy keep you stagnant. Amen.
For the purpose of concluding on this series, I will do a brief recap of all that has been covered. We began by rediscovering, reestablishing and understanding our place in the context of relationship and the highlight of that teaching was that it was for the purpose of relationship that God created us and that relationship is His idea. So let’s learn how to do relationships better by relating with Him first. We said relationship is spiritual, therefore, the word of God provides the necessary tools to help us handle relationships in a godly and knowledgeable manner. We went further to look at 10 possible questions a person should consider asking themselves with answers from scriptures, before getting into any relationship. Then, we later examined a few Bible characters who demonstrated the kingdom approach in relationship. Amen.
In the next series, we will attempt to look at our Father from a relational perspective. Learning from Him relational traits that will enlighten us, and help us approach relationships better. Stay tuned!

They Demonstrated Kingdom Purpose In Relationship

·       The case of Jesus
John 6:38 (NIV)
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.

Jesus was in relationship with the Father and the focus of Jesus while here on earth was to do only the will of His Father. A statement of purpose. Meaning that, at every given time you find Jesus, he was going about the will of His Father. Amen.
That should be our story. Our purpose should be to do only the will of the Father not otherwise. By so doing, we will be great examples in our relationships for others to emulate.

·       The Case of Paul, Timothy and Titus

2 Timothy 1:11 (NLT)
And God chose me to be a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of this Good News.
Emphasis Mine

2 Timothy 4:5 (NKJV)
But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Emphasis Mine

Titus 1:5 (NKJV)
For this reason, I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you.
Emphasis Mine

Add meaning to your life by living purposefully because God created you for a purpose. Amen.
Paul, Timothy and Titus functioned in many offices. The goal of these verses is to help us see how kingdom purpose was emphasized in their relationship as Paul functioned in his purpose in the kingdom and encouraged Timothy and Titus to do likewise. Amen.
