“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” [Philippians 4:19]

John Wesley said that he was…”a man sent from God to persuade people to put Christ at the center of their relationships.”

The Bible is full of the different aspects of relationships between people.  Whether good or bad, relationships have eternal value for us and for others.  There was the strained relationship between Cain and Abel, the distant relationship between Abraham and Lot, and the ambivalent relationship between Moses and the Israelites.  There was the loving relationship between David and Jonathan, the antagonist’s relationship between Jezebel and Elijah, and the close relationship between Christ and his disciples.

Things go askew in every life—relationships are tried on the rough road of life but keeping these three things in mind will help.

No man was given the responsibility to ‘fix’ or supply your needs.  Co-dependency opens the door to control.  Christ works from the inside out to meet your need and increases knowledge of self-worth.

Don’t take the easy way out by allowing others to enable your weakness and inability, it leads to manipulation.  Christ has become your strength and will enable you to grow healthy relationships.

Relationships are always about boundaries when they are broken or you break the boundaries of others repent and Christ will re-set your boundaries in pleasant places.
