Adult & Teen Challenge
PSNL 505 - Connecting with Others provides a roadmap to creating healthy intimacy in our relationships with each other. We are challenged to build upon a foundation of intimacy with God to create healthy community and connections. In this study, we go directly to God’s Word to discover the keys to building and maintaining safe and secure relationships with family, friends, and other believers.
The core Scripture for this study is John 13:34 which says, “As I have loved you, so you MUST love one another” (NIV). Intimacy with God isn’t a solitary (by yourself) deal. God designed, created, and commands us to spread His love to those around us—LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
God’s love changes how we view and feel about those around us. As we reconcile to God, we draw others closer to Him. His love is contagious!
These relationships with others then become structural pieces that strengthen and support us, building the Body of Christ. God designed us to live in community. In fact, He said that it was “not good for man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). Why? Because our relationships with others refine and help us carry out His will for our lives. We need each other.
