My brother-in-law Adam is known for saying, “It’s all about relationships!” He says that in the context of a business owner (Adam’s Car Wash Service) in networking with people. Yet it can also be said and applied to God’s word. From Genesis to Revelation, it is all about relationships; relationships of husbands and wives, families, nations, and God to his people.
Unlike the soft porn movie, 50 Shades of Grey, relationships should be honored and respected, does anything else matter? On your death bed are you going to want to be surrounded by all the things you purchased? Or will it be the people you love and cherish.
The ultimate relationship is our personal connection with God. Though the world thinks He is all about rules and shall not’s, we know he is about grace and drawing us back to Him. Which is precisely why Jesus came to earth, to restore our relationship back to the Father. There are no “shades” of Christianity. You are either in or out. This is one relationship you want to get right, why? Because your eternity is in the balance.
