The bible is replete with who our friends should and what Friendship should mean to us believers. Friendship is initiated whenever two or more individuals acknowledges a sense of (mutual) relevance and developed a sincere respect for (each of) the other. So we have friends even among siblings.
Everyone is in a relationship. We understand this well when we realize the various platforms on which relationship exists and classify them as type of relationship.
Our understanding is also enlightened as we consider the various ways in which these types of relationship played out in the bible.
As such, this article is aimed at outlining the various bible chapters describing each of the various relationships cadre as listed in my previous article.
A retrospection through the fantasy of the pre-adult phase of my life, when I’d often find myself with friends of likeminded rehearsing on who we would love to marry future. Sometimes we even mentioned names; funny memories they are.
More fantasy yet was in my early adulthood. I could still see myself encumbered by the thought of who to marry. I’d have a lot of mind swing. Today, I’m well pleased by Sister
The creation of heaven and earth and all it hosts in a time in eternity; the beginning, is one of the most astounding expression of the Glory of God and a deep mystery.
“You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, the heaven of heavens with their entire host, the earth and all that are on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them and the heavenly host bows down before you.
More astounding Glory still was expressed in the creation of man, who even though he is not the strongest physically, there-in him contained all that is needed to control the other creatures. Indeed, man is the crown of God’s creation and a deeper mystery.
And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creped upon the earth. …
Yet, even more astounding is the creation of woman. The deepest of mystery. God essentially said that man was not adequate, to highlight the high position and ne
SO WHO IS TRULY A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN?
True beauty lies not in looking good, but in being good. To be truly beautiful, the necessary parameters are qualities of love, kindness, joy, peaceable, compassion, forgiveness and honesty. These are not common, as compared to external adornment, and hence are rarer to come by.
A beautiful woman is a woman that is full and empowered in the Holy Ghost. A woman with a life that encourages inspires and empowers others. A confident woman satisfied in her uniqueness and focused in making a difference and leading others in the light of her uniqueness.
There are three virtues that form the pods upon which every lasting relationship is built. They are:
These virtues are all indispensable but not all equally important.
Inarguably, Biblical LOVE; agape love, is the most important because it believes all things and honors others. As we read in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians quoted in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7which reads thus;

WHY DO CHRISTIANS IN RELATIONSHIP LIE TO EACH OTHER? Keys to Building Trusting Relationships Among Christians.
While people may lie in relationship for selfish reason, most other times, people in relationship actually lie with the thought to protect the relationship. Yet, it’s probably safe to assume that every Christian wants a relationship that is built on openness, loyalty and trust.

Beauty is one of the concepts in humanity that is thought to be extremely individualized. Besides the dictionary’s definition of beauty, there is yet no generalised definition for beauty. Perhaps, as there seems to be no defined parameters for describing beauty outside the confines of relativism. So, the Oxford Dictionary definition of beauty is ‘a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight’.
The motivation for this article is the fact that every woman is uniquely beautiful, desirable, and is an epitome of beauty in her own right. And just like the familiar definitions for beauty, ‘beauty is in the eyes of the beholder’, which
The fuel of a Mission’s group growth is in her ability to live out her purpose. It releases a breath of missionarization on her members.
It is a common experience in Mission groups, that an individual’s missionarization is often completed after such individual finally joins for an outreach.

It is always observed with a spirit of celebration and gratitude to God. In most places, it is associated with such activities like a joyful birthday songs, cutting of birthday cakes, lighting candles, receiving gifts, birthday cards and wishes/prayers from loved ones.
Birthday celebration has quite become a global practice.. However, it is one of the big controversy across the various Christian denominations. Just in the same light with other Christian celebrations like Christmas, mother’s day, etc.. So, it is not strange to see some schools of thought disposing the acceptance of birthday celebrations as a normal Christian practices.
It’d become obvious that advises on making Godly homes are often behoved around the ladies; the women. Why? If half of the marriage counsel the churches gives to ladies are given to brothers, many Christian homes would be a perfect Bliss. In all ramifications, it does seems that the churches doesn’t have enough scheme for the brothers. As such, they make much emphasis on the ladies even in issues that men is a central player. For instance, home making is common with women, but home making is also the responsibility of men too, and even much more than it is of the women.
