Friendship is a precious gift from God, God wants us to have health relationships that will help us not face life alone . While we don’t pick what to go through we choose who to go through it with . God has given us many great gifts and friendship is one of them.
BUT ON the first day of the week, at early dawn, [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready.
And they found the stone rolled back from the tomb,
But when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
And while they were perplexed and wondering what to do about this, behold, two men in dazzling raiment suddenly stood beside them.
And as [the women] were frightened and were bowing their faces to the ground, the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among [those who are] dead?
He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He told you while He was still in Galilee
God wishes us to have relationships that are based on the right thing. When we look at these women they where extremely United . Imagine they travelled all the way from Galile to Jerusalem to see Jesus. But even when they found Jesus was dead they didn’t split they still said let us go and offer Jesus body a good death . Such unit can only come when a relationship is based on Jesus Christ. God wants us to Base our relationship on Jesus . These women were brought together by Jesus.
Their relationship was formed before a crisis . They were friends before Jesus died and because he was the one who was their rock they stayed together even after his death . When you have friends who your foundation is based on Jesus Christ you get to have collective faith , strength and energy. Even when you are weak you are able to rest on your friends strength from God.
When you surround yourself with right people they become your SUPPORT SYSTEM and God speaks to you through them . This speaking is indirectly , for example you want to give up and a friend encourages you not to and helps you pick up your broken pieces and rebuild your life . That’s God working through them …No one is suppose to be an island we need one another in life !
HOW IS YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM?
