Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Sharpening One Another

December 19th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Sharpening one another.

Proverbs 27:17 says, “as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

The Christian life is to be lived out in the context of a community.

As we connect with each other, we have the opportunity to sharpen each other to be useful instruments of God’s grace.

This is how the early church was a dynamic force of the Gospel. They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer….Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.

Acts 2:47 says that the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Sharpening one another is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
