Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 32: Spiritual Relationships


Right relationships are where we find reality, and yet they seem to be where the most problems are found. What is God’s way into right and satisfying relationships? Is it possible to have right relationships with all? It seems that this is where the enemy of our soul works overtime and where problems abound on every hand. Sin resulted in a broken relationship with God, but Christ died that so that relationship could be restored. The effects of sin permeate this world and affect every human relationship. In Christ relationships are restored and brought back to God’s intention. Yet to see the reality of this, we must avail of the full grace of God in Christ Jesus. How do we do this?


• The result of sin is a broken relationship with God
o All of us begin separated from God
o The gospel is the way that relationship is restored
• The effects of sin are seen in broken relationships with men
o The struggle is most often seen first in the family
o Godly parents are the key to right family relationships
o Challenges in relationships are to be expected in mankind
• The family of God is where spiritual relationships are established
o Relationships are now not natural but spiritual (2 Cor. 5:16)
o We see others as “members of Christ” (I Cor. 12:27)
o Spiritual relationships are according to “life” not “understanding”
o The effects of sin in all of us make the relationships challenging
• What are the essential elements to establishing right relationships?
o I as an individual must be in union with Christ by the Spirit
o I am allowing Jesus to change me in every relationship
o A Godly care (love) for others in my heart (Rom. 5:1-5)
o When a relationship is not right, do we have spiritual discernment why?
o If we see the root problem, do we have God’s wisdom in what to do?
o Are we holding “truth” in “love”


All spiritual Reality is found in Right Relationships
Religion Replaces Relationship with Ritual and Rules
