Building Relationships that Feel Like Family

September 18, 2022 Speaker: Joel Sutton Series: Extraordinary Norms

Five Extraordinary Norms:

  • Every Christ-follower should be growing in their ability to reflect the character and priorities of Jesus Christ.
  • Every Christ-follower should be building relationships that feel like family with other Christ-followers.
  • Every Christ-follower should be shaped by God’s story and share it with others.
  • Every Christ-follower should be recognizing and responding to the needs of others in a tangible way.
  • Every Christ-follower should be living life as a residential missionary.

Four reasons to pursue deep friendships with other Christ-followers.

  • Deep Friendship is God’s plan. Acts 2; Matt. 6:9
  • I need others to walk with me. Colossians 2:6 -7;  Heb 2:10 
  • I need others to watch out for me. 1 Corinthians 12:21; Phil. 2:4 
  • I need others to wait and weep with me. 1 Corinthians 12:26


Take Home Idea:  As growing disciples, God has created you to connect with other believers.
