26 Bible verses on importance of Christian Relationships

Introduction

One of the greatest vessels for nurturing a man into maturity is the parts played by other persons. God places people in our path and us in theirs so that we might be a blessing to each other. Thus, the purpose in building friendship should be to encourage, lift up, correct and help build the Grace in each other. And to do all we can to assist them in achieving their dreams.

Relationship is very potent for a successful journey of life. As such, the principle of Christian relationship is as well valuable as other common principle like financial principle, academic principle, etc. These we see in the following bible verses that itemize the importance of Christian Relationships;

1. Relationships are one of the key tools God uses to purposefully work in the lives of His potential vessels.

Especially, divine relationships are God’s means of taking us through to the purposes of our life.

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

(Exo 17:8-16)

And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

(Exo 33:11)

And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God. And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.

(Exo 24:13-14)

Joshua’s early training demonstrates how God can use our life experiences to equip and prepare us before calling us to do greater works later in life.

And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee? And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.

(1Ki 19:20-21)

And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

(2Ki 2:9)

We can’t explain that we are following Christ and growing spiritually if we are at crisis with one another. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

(Luk 1:41-45)

9. Source of Growth, Help, encouragement and Success

Our friends are the components of who we have become; good friends is as good as good ideas, good opportunities, good skills, good minds, good heart. The divine relationship is thus a good ingredient for success.

There are invaluable treasures in people. There are some people you meet, and your whole life begins to turn around for good.

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

(Ecc 4:9-12)

Good and purposeful Christian relationship brings the best match together, the end result is as in the verses below;

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

(Pro 31:10-11)

House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.

(Pro 19:14)

CONCLUSION

Even as we advance in our work with God, submission to submission to one another in a relationship is a value that we always would appreciate. We are continually required to honor one another especially, those who are in the faith with us. We see this in Paul’s admonition to the Thessalonians in 1 Thess. 5:12-13; and we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; 13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
