iRelate

Teaching Series: Autumn 2012

True life is defined by relationship. Jesus declared that this life is discovered only by knowing him, and his Father. He put it like this:

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (John 17:3).

It’s not what we are, or where we’ve been or even what we’ve done that brings life. It’s knowing Him, and out of that knowing Him we are to know others. We were made in His image to relate. Firstly to Him, and then to everyone else. The life He gives, we share. It’s all relationship.

In this iRelate series we shall explore some of these dominant relationships that make up our lives.

Simon Harris, Senior Minister
