Sermons from New Covenant Community Church

Release the Power of Relationship (Romans 12:9-18, Proverbs 17:17)

Dick Beaumont, October 1, 2017
Part of the None series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Romans 12:9-18, Prov 17:17. God has made us to have relationship with each other, and He is the one who defines what friendships and relationships are supposed to look like. We are supposed to encourage each other, lift one another up, and live at peace with one another. In this sermon, Pastor Dick Beaumont talks about how to have friendship God's way: Take a step back, find fulfillment in giving instead of receiving, and let the Spirit of God minister through your life to others.

Romans 12:9-18

Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. (ESV)

Proverbs 17:17

17 A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity. (ESV)
