Pastor John Young reviews some aspects of relationships as we grow in walking together. It is important to have a proper perspective in understanding where we find our identity. Our relationships thrive by us conquering evil with good. Regardless of what others do, we see God at work when we do good regardless. Most importantly, we cannot follow Christ on our own. We need each other and are encouraged to carry each others burdens … understanding we can help each other with burdens without being absorbed by them. Message delivered 9/17/17.
